MEET DESCRIPTION
This USATF sanctioned meet (Event ID: 137808) is hosted by the San Diego Track Club and serves as the 2022 USATF San Diego-Imperial (SD-I) Association Masters Championships. The meet is open to All Comers ages 30 and up. Everyone is encouraged to participate. This meet is open to the public even if you are not a San Diego Track Club member or a USATF member.

AWARDS ELIGIBILITY
San Diego-Imperial Association Championship medals are only for athletes who are 2022 members of the SD-I Association. Proof of membership will be verified using the SD-I membership rosters before the meet. Please be prepared by bringing your 2022 USATF membership card or membership number and identification and present it to the Clerk of the Course before checking in for your event.

AWARDS
Only SD-I USATF members receive Association awards. Medals to first 3 finishers in each division and age group: 30-34; 35-39; 40-44; 45-49; 50-54; 55-59; 60-64; 65-69; 70-74; 75-79; 80-84; 85-89; 90+

MEET STRUCTURE
Heats for running events will be determined by division and age group you provide during registration. The meet director may combine heats that have only a few athletes. Every attempt will be made to have a separate heat for athletes 30-39 years, and 40 years and up. Running events that require lanes for the entire event will have heats by division and age group. These include hurdles, 50, 100, 200, and 400 Meter Dashes.

Masters athletes should use the proper division- and age-appropriate field equipment and throw age-appropriate implements. Proper field equipment and implements will be verified by USATF officials. Please bring your own equipment for the field and throwing events.

For both track and field events, the heats and age groups will be merged into a single final set of results separated by divisions and age groups. SD-I Association awards will be given by division and age-group only to 2022 SD-I Association members.

ENTRY FEES
Online only. The registration fee is $15 per athlete plus $5 for each event. For example, if an athlete enters 3 events the total fee is $30; $15 per athlete plus $15 ($5 times 3 events). If an athlete enters only 1 event the total fee is $20 ($15 plus $5).

PARKING AND CHECK-IN
Free parking will be at the University City High School parking lot. Enter the high school grounds at the stop light at Genesee Avenue and Centurion Square, and bear right. The track is west of the tennis courts. There are ~80 shaded parking spots in front of the high school.

MEET SCHEDULE
This schedule may change slightly depending on the number of entries. If you enter multiple events, especially in both track and field contests, please be aware of the start times for your events. This may influence your decision to enter back-to-back events. Every attempt has been made to schedule start times that do not interfere with competing in similar events, such as the dashes, and hurdles, or with field events. Women will compete first, followed by Men.

The Meet Director will be wearing a bright orange hat and San Diego Track Club windbreaker.

Of course, an athlete may check-in anytime and as early as they would like. The exception is for the 3000-meter racewalk, the first event of the day. Check-in time for the 3000-meter racewalk is no later than 7:30AM.

If you sign up for multiple events, you must check-in with the Clerk of the Course a minimum of 30 minutes before the start of each event you signed up for. Call Times will be announced and available at the Clerk of the Course popup tent.

Field event athletes should check in with the Clerk of the Course a minimum of 30 minutes prior to their respective event, and check-in again with the USATF Official at their respective field event location a minimum of 25 minutes prior to their event. Athletes competing in more than one event simultaneously, of if their events have an overlapping time, they must check-in and check-out with each official to avoid being scratched or disqualified if they miss a turn. In other words, please don’t just disappear and go to your other event. Check-out and check back in.
