Photo by Jerry Wojcik, National Masters News Competitors will be asked to assist the New England Association by filling out a survey form that they will receive at registration. With the indoor championships remaining in Boston through 2002, the Association hopes to use the information to make further improvements for future years, as well as attract additional corporate support. Both New Balance and M-F Athletics who were on board for the 1998 event are returning as sponsors for the 2000 meet. Athletes are also encouraged to submit with their entry form any recent notable performances or places in national or international competitions for use by the meet announcer and for media disbursement.

Photo by Jerry Wojcik, National Masters News The year 2000 presents the fifth time that the Championships are held in New England, the first time being the inaugural meet in 1981, with approximately 200 participants. In 1998, the third year of competition in Boston and organized by the New England Association of USA Track & Field, the meet had a record 817 entrants. Meet management in 1997 and 1999 was by TRACS, Inc., who again are scheduled to organize the championships in 2001. In 2002 the Championships will be back in Boston, and meet management at that time will again revert to USA Track & Field - New England.
