Submitting Results to USATF
As part of USATF's ongoing efforts to provide recognition to athletes and to promote the sport, USATF encourages all events to submit their results. This also fulfills the requirement that sanctioned events submit results to USATF. USATF uses these results in its rankings (e.g., all performances on USATF-certified courses will be included in the City/State Rankings). In addition, these performances will be eligible for world rankings, national age group rankings, records and annual awards presented by USATF and various media outlets. Regardless of the size of your event, your results are important to us and we encourage you to submit them.
Currently, results are not posted on the USATF website, however they are used for database purposes.
E-mail your results in the indicated format (see below) to: results(nospam)@usatf.org
