Masters exhibition races at open nationals: women’s 60, men’s 60H
Not yet official, but the word from Virginia Beach is that an M40-plus 60-meter (39-inch) hurdles and women’s 60-meter dash will be the masters exhibition races at USA open indoor nationals. The meet is Feb. 26-27, 2011, at Albuquerque, New Mexico. That’s where USATF Masters Indoor Nationals will be a week later. So this favors folks living in the regionâ€”or who can afford a long stay in New Mexico. Mark Cleary, invitational program coordinator, will eventually post qualifying standards and deadlines. It’s the first time these events have been showcased indoors. (Hurdles have been contested at outdoor open nationals.) So progress is being made.
