Elite Athletes
If you are an elite athlete in the Niagara region, please feel free to reach out to your men's or women's LDR rep pictured above for assistance.  You may qualify for programs sponsored at the National level.  See the ADP standards and eligibility to see if you qualify.  A list of National Championships can be found there, or a more complete list here.  We encourage you to go out and show the country how good athletes from Niagara are.


Long distance running consists of many different age and skill levels as it also varies in different distances.  Many people run for different reasons, some people choose to run to get in shape for another sport or to improve their lifestyle.  While others decide to run for the competition, to test oneself, and for the mere enjoyment of running.  The Niagara Association members come from all different ages and levels of abilities, which include up and coming youth athletes who are just starting out in the sport, high school athletes with some experiences, more seasoned collegiate athletes participating in cross country and track, post-collegiate male and female athletes making their mark after college, and the many masters level athletes competing in road racing, cross country, and track.  Look for many of our Niagara Association athletes competing in National Champions and inspiring future Olympians.

As the Men’s Long Distance Running Chair I am dedicated to improve the different aspects of running in our association such as the quality of competition at our championships and the individual performances at all levels.  I also feel it is important that our association members traveling to other regions and/or to National Championships perform at their very highest level. 

Eric Boyce,  Men's LDR Chair

Future Championships

USATF Niagara will be looking to get bids for 2015 races in late 2014.  Race Directors interested in bidding should consider talking to any of the LDR chairs throughout the year.  This will help you know what we are looking for in Championship races, so that you can complete a more successful bid.  The races and prize structures will be re-evaluated at the end of the year, but the committee hopes to offer a race structure that is at a minimum the same as the 2014 offering.  Please note if a 4th championship of a different distance and sufficient caliber submits a bid we will gladly consider adding a 4th championship for the year, funds allowing.

The 2012 USATF Niagara bid form can be found here  usatf_niagara_bid_document.




Attention Masters runners! You may qualify for a running achievement award from USATF.  The Phidippides Award is inspired by the historic masters runner, an award available to dedicated members of USATF (over the age of 40) who earn points through their participation in road races, cross country, and M. U. T. throughout the year.  Athletes who earn enough points will be recognized by USATF with a personalized Gold, Silver, or Bronze plaque.  Learn more here
