$400 in prize money at New England USATF masters indoor meet

Mike Travers passes the word that the New England Masters Indoor Championships on Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015, will be offering prize money! “Tentatively — best age-graded performance (male) $150 and 2nd place $50. Best age-graded performance (female) $150 and 2nd place $50.” Any entrant is eligible for the loot, not just New England USATF members, Mike says of the meet in Providence, Rhode Island, adding: “Feb. 1 is Super Bowl Sunday, [so] we will be moving the start times up earlier in the day to accommodate those who travel.” Entry forms are still to come. In the olden daze, prize money was frowned upon — and even got some masters banned. Now it’s a staple of road races. Glad it’s seeping into track meets as well.

    Age performances should be separated into at least two if not three categories.
    Not a fan of comparing throws to a middle distance performance. I do applaud the prize $$ though.
