USATF-NE is your local New England association of the USA Track & Field. As one of USATF's 57 associations, USATF - New England administers programs in the states of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. With over 3000 members, 100 member clubs, and 400 sanctioned events, the New England association is one of the most active and largest associations in the country.
Why join USATF? OK, Check out all the good reasons below, but really the main reason we want to encourage USATF participation is to support our USATF teams and maybe win a few bucks. Team spirit and all that! Although only the fastest 3 or 5 score, anyone with current USATF membership can be on the team, so the more the merrier!
Competition -This is a series of 7 races, from 5K to marathon, featuring both individual and club USATF competition. Points are awarded for each race, based on placement, and awards given for individuals and teams at each race, and for the individuals and teams with the most points accumulated at the end of the whole series. All runners completing all 7 races, regardless of finishing time, are deemed Ironrunners and rewarded for completing the series, usually with a nice running jacket bearing the USATF logo on the front and logos for each of the 7 event races on the back.
