Final, hourly schedules are posted for Winston-Salem nationals
And just in time. The hourly sked for North Carolina masters nationals is posted here. It was five years ago when USATF masters national Chairman Gary Snyder pledged on his short-lived blog that final skeds would be posted at least 14 days ahead of the meet. He wrote in January 2009: “The committee also voted to approve a standard time line for the indoor and outdoor USA Championships meets. This provide for the posting of schedules on a consistent basis to aid travel and lodging arrangements. 6 Months prior to first day of competition â€” Entries open with day of event schedule; 26 Days prior to first day of competition â€” Entries Close; 19 Days prior to first day of competition â€” Late entries close; 14 Days prior to first day of competition â€” Detail Schedule Available.” The North Carolina sked shows distance races in the morning, but no midday breaks. Many races and events will thus be contested in the sweltering heat (if that’s our fate). According to one extended forecast, highs in the low 90s are expected on opening day, July 17. But it cools after that. We’ll see.
