Qualifying Guidelines

  1. All qualifying performances for running events must be made on a standard indoor or a 400m outdoor track. For the 5,000m race walk and the 10,000m, road race times are acceptable from courses that are USATF certified.
  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 that prescribe to or exceed USATF competition rules
    2. events at collegiate meets that prescribe to or exceed USATF competition rules
    3. high school meets, except dual and triangular meets
  3. All qualifying marks must be attained during the qualifying windows shown above.
  4. Fully automatic timing (F.A.T.) is the only method of timing acceptable for qualifying marks for events equal to or shorter than 400 meters.
  5. A manual time may be used for qualifying for events of 800 meters and longer only if F.A.T. was not used during the meet and the manual time appears in the official results.
  6. All performances are subject to verification. Entry marks must be verifiable by their posting on the internet (at the official meet website or a known results-gathering website).
  7. There are no qualifying standards for relays, but only the A team will be eligible to score team points, provided they meet the minimum relay scoring standards.
  8. Each club may enter one non-qualified athlete per event if they have no other qualifiers in that event.
  9. The Games Committee will adjust the standards, where necessary, 45 days prior to the competition, based on received entries at the tim.  Therefore, early submission of an entry close to the standard is advised
