November 20 2015. USATF Masters LDR Representative to Cross Country, Bill Quinlisk, has issued the following alert:
As you know the Dec. 10
USATF National Club XC Championships in San Francisco has split the
Masters Men's field into 2 races. There will be an 8k for all M60+ and a
10k for M40-59. There is one wrinkle in this configuration. M60+
sometimes opt to run with a M40+ or M50+ team. This will force those
runners to make a choice. If a Masters male runner age 60+ chooses to run
the M40+ 10k race, then they will not be eligible for individual age
group awards since they will not be in the same race as the other M60+.
The USATF event registration system has just been updated to allow this
option. If any Masters Men 60+ runners have already entered the Club XC
meet in the 8k and wish to opt out in order to run the Masters Men 40+
10k so that they can run for a M40+ or M50+ team, then they should
contact the Masters LDR XC Rep., Bill Quinlisk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please send him your USATF membership number and let him know for which
age division club team you wish to run (e.g., Boulder Road Runners M50+
