Long Distance Running

Thousands of road races are held throughout the year, both locally and nationally, where masters athletes can compete for age-division honors.  Cross country meets are often held in the fall and winter, and many meets include a team scoring component that provides a platform for camaraderie and teamwork. Mountain and trail runs provide masters athletes an opportunity to run on terrain that is generally more rugged and challenging than standard cross country courses. Many such events are held in parks and mountain resorts. To learn more about long distance running, visit the Road Running, Cross Country, and Mountain/Ultra/Trail sections.

Race Walking

Competitions are conducted throughout the year in a variety of USATF-sanctioned events and National, Regional, and Association Championships. Visit the Race Walking section to learn more about race walking.
