USA Masters Track and Field

ALL AMERICAN

For every masters age group and every track and field event, standards have been developed which qualify an athlete for All-American status.

Track and Field - MEN - WOMEN

Notes:
  1. Track standards are based on FAT time. Hand times must have .24 added to their performances.
  2. All track standards are followed by zeros ad infinitum.
Example: In the 100 meters for the W55 division, the standard is 16.4. Two athletes ran in this division at a meet where HAND timing was used, one having a time of 16.16 and another running 16.17. Because it was hand-timed, adding .24 give the results of 16.40 and 16.41. Only the athlete running 16.40 met the All-American standard.

To qualify and to be recognized as a USATF Masters All-American, an athlete must equal or better the published standard, be a member of USATF and must submit an application form. A small payment is required to receive an All-American Patch, Certificate or Event Tag. National Masters News offers MANY other awards for All-Americans.
