Logo enforcement at Fall XC Champs clarified
Following meetings on Friday with the Athletes Advisory Committee and USATF Club Council, USA Track & Field has revised its uniform guidelines for 2011 USATF Fall Cross Country Championships, commonly referred to as the Club Cross Country Championships.

Recognizing the unique needs of clubs and the nature of the Championships, IAAF logo restrictions will not be in place. Uniform regulations in USATF Rule 253 will remain in force, requiring team uniforms to be similar in color and style.
