USATF Masters Long Distance Running Awards/Rankings Performance Guidelines

Each year USA Track & Field (USATF) presents Long Distance Masters of the Year awards to athletes in 5-year age divisions and also develops year-end age division rankings.   To assist in this process, Awards/Rankings Performance Guidelines have been developed that a runner must exceed in order to have their performances reviewed and considered for the year-end awards and rankings.  The Performance Guidelines have been recently updated from previously published guidelines.

If a runnerís performance is better than what is included in the Performance Guidelines then a submission of that performance should be sent to

What should the submission include? 

USATF awards are only given to USATF members, so the athleteís USATF membership status should also be included.
