You must be a 2019 USATF member to enter the Masters 5 km Cross Country Championships. All Masters athletes must be citizens of the United States and eligible to represent the United States in international competition to be eligible for team scoring and for USATF medals and prize money.  Non-citizens who are USATF members are welcome to compete but may not score for a team nor win USATF individual championship medals and prize money. However, any non-citizen USATF member who would otherwise displace a USATF citizen member for an individual award will receive a non-championship medal.
