After two years running the 5,000m, we’ll be bumping up the mileage to the 10,000m.
**NOTE: Please remember that all indoor/outdoor track performances for the All-Terrain Runner (ATR) series must be emailed (firstname.lastname@example.org), notes on Facebook and elsewhere will be ignored. Please include a link to the result along with your 2016 USATF membership number.
Regarding the submission of track times, we have instituted a deadline for the 2016 series. For 2016, all eligible 10,000m outdoor track times must be submitted by no later than 1 week after the qualifying window closes for those times to count in the series. This is necessary because in the off chance that someone holds onto their time until the fall, well that just isn’t fair to the other runners and it doesn’t actually promote competition (which is kind of the point of all this).
Also, that tactic doesn’t help the Series at all. Being a relatively new series (and idea) still, we need to show that our numbers are strong and the best way to do that is with robust numbers showing up in our standings.
