Masters Grand Prix

Welcome to the USATF Masters Grand Prix
There are two components to the Grand Prix; there is an Individual Grand Prix and a Club Grand Prix. All Masters Runners, 40 years of age or older, may compete in the Individual Grand Prix by joining USATF and registering and competing in one of our National Championships. There are no qualifying standards to participate in Championship events. Masters runners who are also members of USATF Clubs may participate in the Club Grand Prix.

In the last two years the Masters Grand Prix has had over 4000 participants and awarded nearly a quarter of a million dollars in prize money. Awards are paid out in terms of 5-year age groups for individuals and 10-year age groups for teams. Age-graded awards are a major component of the individual prize money. Many runners who do not place among the top prize winners still qualify for an Elite Performance Medal. Races are spread out across the country and over the year. Take a look at the schedule below and pick out a race or two in your area or as a destination race, perhaps to combine with a vacation.
The schedule for 2017 appears below. For detailed rules please see the 2017 Individual Grand Prix Rules and the 2017 Club Grand Prix Rules.
The Annual Schedule starting with the 2017-18 year will run from November 1 to October 31 of the following year. New Schedule Year.
