Sanctioning / Timing

USATF Sanctioning

A USATF sanction is an official designation issued by USATF, through a local Association, which approves and licenses the holding of a competitive track & field, long distance running or race walking event in the United States. The sanction is also a contract, which evidences the event's commitment to follow national and international rules and regulations of the sport and to provide a safe environment for the participants and spectators. Once the event has satisfied the sanction requirements, the event's application for sanction is approved.

Our course is USATF sanctioned.  USATF sanctioning provides the following benefits to the participants:

  • Liability Insurance - Most governmental entities including cities, counties, state highway departments, parks and community centers require general liability insurance for all events.
  • Medical Insurance for Athletes - Any athlete who is a USATF member and is injured while participating in a sanctioned event will be eligible for secondary medical insurance coverage for the injury.
  • Records - In general, a sanction is required for a record to be set. There are some exceptions to this rule, however.
  • Resolving Disputes - If requested, USATF will act as an arbiter in disputes between athletes and sanctioned events.

Electronic Chip Timing!!!  NEW for 2013: Disposable chips will be used for our 5th annual race (available at packet pick up).  Also, we will use both Start line and Finish line sensor mats for more accurate timing.

We are very proud to be able to bring these 2 improvements to our 2013 event.
