2014 Results

The USATF Niagara Masters Cross Country Championships is coming up quickly.  It will again be hosted by the Pete Glavin Upstate New York Cross Country Series.  Anyone is eligible to enter the race, but only USATF Niagara members who are over the age of 40 and U.S. citizens are eligible to compete in this Championship. Become a member today!

Please read through the information packet for complete information.  
Cross Country has typically been a team competition, and thus, USATF Niagara is proud to announce prize money to each winning USATF Niagara club per gender in 10 year age groups. (Eligible club list) Prize money is based on each number of SCORING individuals!
Masters Men teams 40+, 50+, and 60+ score 5 competitors. (Team declaration forms)
Masters Men 70+, 80+ and ALL Masters Women teams score 3 competitors. (Team declaration forms)

As a Masters Championship, we are also pleased to award 5 men and 5 women individual prize money. To be fair across all age groups, this will be done as an age graded award based on standard age grading tables. As a reminder, this means those who run the hardest for the entire race will have the best chance at prize money, not just those at the front of the race.
Again, see the linked information packet for complete details!
