The USATF-NE Points Chase is back for 2018- 2019!

Open Standings   ---   Masters Standings

Athletes compete during the indoor season with performances earning points from the IAAF scoring tables - these tables allow comparisons across all event disciplines. Competitors' top 4 scores duing the season through the February 24 are totaled for final placings.  Athletes competing in the USATF-NE meet earn bonus points.  The top 5 scoring athletes - male and female combined - will earn cash awards. 

New this year - a masters division will score by totaling age graded percentages from 3 events,  with top 3 winning cash prizes.

Athletes submit their performances and USATF-NE does the scoring. Weekly scoring updates will be published.
