ALL North Jersey Masters members are invited to participate on our USA Track & Field (USATF) racing team!
We compete against other clubs and teams from New Jersey in the USATF-NJ team grand prix competition. We’re ranked annually as a club based on how many points we win at each USATF-NJ championship race during the year. These races are held around the state at distances ranging from 1 mile to half marathon.
There are separate teams for men and women in both open (under 40) and masters age groups (40-49, 50-59, 60-69, etc.). Some races are championships for all divisions, meaning all age group teams, while others are for teams of a specific gender or age.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN!
-NJM Members of all ages and abilities are welcome and encouraged to participate on our teams – we’ve had teenagers, ages 80 and older, and everything in between.
-NJM can enter multiple teams in an age group.
-Runners of every pace are eligible. The only qualification standard is the desire to run for our club and to be on our NJM team!!!!!!
