Nat’l Club T&F Champs Back to NYC in 2011

INDIANAPOLIS – The 2011 USATF National Club Track & Field Championships
will be held at New York City’s Icahn Stadium, July 8-9.  This will
mark the fourth time the championships have been held in New York since
2005.  The meet will be hosted by the Central Park Track Club New
Balance, who captured the 2009 combined team title the last time the
event was held at Icahn Stadium.

 

“We
are extremely pleased that the Club Championships are returning to one
of America’s premier track & field venues, in an area that is a
hotbed for our sport and the USATF club program,” said USATF Director of
Grass Roots Programs Andy Martin. “The 2005, 2007, and 2009 Club
Championships held at Icahn Stadium were very successful, as
participation grew considerably. We look forward to continued growth in
2011 and an exciting event.” 

At
the 2010 championships in San Francisco, Calif., the Central Park Track
Club New Balance (Metropolitan) captured the men’s team title, and the
Norfolk Real Deal TC (Virginia) claimed the women’s crown.  Both clubs
will look to defend their titles this July in New York.

The
Club Track & Field Championships is an event that supports USATF’s
goal to enhance and expand opportunities for open level, club-based team
competition.
