This USATF sanctioned meet (Event ID: 143994) is hosted by the San Diego Track Club and
serves as the 2023 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.
USATF SD-I AWARDS ELIGIBILITY
San Diego-Imperial Association Championship medals are only for athletes who are 2023
members of the SD-I USATF Association. Proof of membership will be verified using the SD-I
membership rosters before the meet. Please be prepared by bringing your 2023 USATF
membership card or membership number and identification and present it to the Clerk of the
Course before checking in for your event.
All athletes placing in the top 3 for their event will receive a medal this year! Only SD-I
Association members will receive Association awards. If an athlete is not a USATF SD-I
member and places in the top 3 then a San Diego Track Club medal will be awarded. Medals to
the top 3 finishers in each division, men or women, 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
The start times for the meet have been pushed back this year to accommodate athletes who are travelling from Arizona and the Los Angeles area. Last year there were athletes from Fresno! The pole vault has also been pushed back, starting at 12PM this year. Heats for running events will be determined by the 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 the short hurdles, 50-, 100-, 200-, and 400-meter dashes. Note: we do not have 27-inch hurdles for the 80-meter hurdles race which unfortunately affects men 80+years and women 60+ years.
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 2023 SD-I Association members. If an athlete is not a USATFSD-I member and places in the top 3 then a San Diego Track Club medal will be awarded.
Online only. The registration fee is $20 per athlete plus $5 for each event.
