  • Association Championships are open to all athlete members of the USATF. You need to be a Colorado Association member for this championship race.
  • Team Members need to be Colorado residents and association members OR if you are not a Colorado resident: An athlete who is a non-resident member of an Association is eligible to compete for a team in that Association only if the athlete: (a) Resides in an adjoining Association within the government-defined Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) of a city which is primarily in the neighboring Association as approved by the appropriate sport committee or council or; (b) Has historical membership based upon Association residency (at least three continuous USATF membership years) is eligible to compete for that club. See Rule 341.8 for Masters LDR.
Scoring by place: The Team Championships for Open and Masters races shall be scored by place. Scoring by place:
(a) The team score shall be the total of the finishing positions of the scoring members. The team with the lowest total points is the team winner.
(b) Runners of incomplete teams, team entries not declared eligible for team scoring, and unattached or individual competitors will be eliminated from team scoring. Non-scoring declared members of complete teams shall retain their finishing positions and thereby displace other runners.

(d) In the event of a tie between two or more individual runners, each shall score the number of points determined by dividing the total of the finish places by the number of runners who have tied. 
Open Team Entries and Scoring: The number of entries for a team shall be unlimited but a maximum of eight entries shall be declared and the first five declared members of each team shall count in that team's score.  If a club enters more than one team, each team should be clearly identified.
