Qualifying Guidelines for Championships

  1. All qualifying performances for running events may be made on an indoor or outdoor track for the outdoor championships. There are no allowances for altitude, nor for indoor facilities of differing size, banking or other configuration.
  2. Qualifying marks must be made in accordance with USATF Rule 149 and verifiable in one of the following:
    1. USATF or IAAF sanctioned events which prescribe to or exceed USATF competition rules
    2. Events at collegiate meets which prescribe to or exceed USATF competition rules, or
    3. High school meets, but not dual or triangular meets.
    4. Meets or events which meet a minimum for competitiveness set by the Chair of the Sport Committee and determined to be valid by the USATF National Office staff member responsible for verification.
  3. This is an annual Championship which requires qualification within a specific period of time.
    Qualifying marks from outdoor competitions must be attained on or after Wednesday, June 23, 2010 through Sunday, June 19, 2011. Qualifying marks from indoor competitions must be attained within the same time period. Qualifying marks for the 10,000-meters, Race Walk, and Combined Events must be attained on or after Saturday, January 2, 2010 through Sunday, June 19, 2011.
  4. * F.A.T. is the only method of timing acceptable for qualifying marks for events listed with an asterisk. Times submitted in hundredths of a second, must be fully automatic times.
  5. A manual time may be used for qualifying in all other running events only if no fully automatic qualifying time exists for the individual in that event during the qualifying period. A manual time may not supersede any fully automatic qualifying time for an event.
    1. women - Qualifying manual times, for eligible events, are the F.A.T. qualifying time without the last zero for events 200m and longer; the F.A.T. time minus 0.14 for events 400m - 1 Mile. The seed time for a submitted manual time will be in accordance with USATF Rule 76.

  6. For the Junior Championships, the 5,000m, 10,000m and 3,000m steeplechase events, petitions will be accepted for entry into these events using qualifying times from alternate distances (e.g. Use of a 1,500m qualifying time for a petition to run the 5,000m).
  7. All performances are subject to verification by USATF and its statisticians.
