BOSTON PREPS FOR INDOOR NATIONALS
Preparations are well underway for the sixth consecutive USATF National Masters Indoor Championships to be held in Boston, Mass. The meet will open on Friday March 22th at 9:30am with the men's and women's pentathlon and conclude on Sunday afternoon the 24th with the sections of the 4 x 400m relay. The Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center, which has produced more than 100 masters world indoor records in the past three years, is expected to see a multitude of alterations of the record book in 2002 as over 800 competitors are expected for the event. The meet will be hosted and managed by the New England Association of USATF, reprising their role in the 1998 and 2000 Indoor Nationals.
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 now through 2004 , 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 and 2000 events are returning as sponsors for the 2002 meet. Athletes are also encouraged to submit any recent notable performances or places in national or international competitions with their entry form for use by the meet announcer and for media disbursement.
The 2002 meet presents the eight time that the Championships are held in New England, the first time being in 1975 (Tufts University, Medford MA) with approximately 100 participants. In 1981, about 200 competitors met at M.I.T. in Cambridge MA. 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, 1999, and 2001 was by TRACS, Inc. Meet management through 2004 will be by USA Track & Field - New England.
