Flash 100 could be worth $500 to winner, plus $100 bonus for WR

Kuba Wasowski

How’d you like to make $168,000 an hour for sprinting? Actually, that’s what 10.7 seconds of work is worth for a top prize of $500 at the Flash 100 invitational March 15-16 at San Diego State University. The event is being folded into the USATF Masters Invitational circuit overseen by Mark Cleary. And a rough draft of the entry form shows prize money as follows: $500 for first, $300 for second and $100 for third, with $100 bonus for world age-group record. Prize money is common for masters roadies, but rare for sprinters. We used to have a $100 prize for the winner of the handicap 100 at national masters meets — organized by National Masters News. and Australia is famed for professional age-group handicap sprints. But masters sprinters rarely have a pay day, so this is momentous. Check out the original post for more info. Kuba Wasowski is behind event.

    I’m surprised there aren’t more comments on this. Prize money for tracksters would be great. If there are more meets that offer prize money, maybe it will attract more participation even if it’s for the wrong reason.
