2018 USARC Series set to kick off February 3 in Tallahassee, Florida


INDIANAPOLIS - Ten cities welcome the 2018 USA Running Circuit (USARC), where American athletes will vie for more than $800,000 in prize money, including a $100,000 pursue distributed to the  top five overall finishers of the series.


The 10-race calendar boasts races with a collective $720,000 in prize money as two new cities are slated to host USATF Championships. Tallahassee, Florida, kicks off the series with the 2018 USATF Cross Country Championships this Saturday, hosting the selection event for Team USATF for the 2018 NACAC Cross Country Championships in El Salvador. In May, Pittsburgh joins USARC when it hosts the 2018 USATF Half Marathon Championships.


USATF celebrates with the Gate River Run (15 km) and Fifth Third River Bank Run (25 km) in a quarter century of USARC championships. Familiar sites Jacksonville, Des Moines, Grand Rapids, Atlanta, New Haven, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York and Sacramento round out the circuit.  


All USARC events will be broadcast on USATF.TV+, either live or on demand, beginning Feb. 3 with the USATF Cross Country Championships in Tallahassee, Florida.


The mission of the USATF Running Circuit is to showcase, support and promote U.S. runners. Since its inception in 1995, the USARC and its races have provided over $9 million to U.S. distance runners. Leonard Korir and Aliphine Tuliamuk took home the top prizes as the 2017 USARC Champions.
