May 15, 2020, Greensboro, NC: Today USATF and the Greensboro Local Organizing Committee jointly announced the cancellation of the 2020 USATF Masters Outdoor Championships due to COVID-19 concerns.
The 2020 USATF Masters Outdoor Championships were scheduled to be held July 9-12, 2020 at North Carolina A&T State University’s Ike Belk Track at BB&T Stadium. USATF is committed to working with the Greensboro LOC on hosting future championships.
Hill Carrow, Chairman of the Greensboro Local Organizing Committee, said, “As one can imagine, we are extremely disappointed that the USATF Masters Championships had to be cancelled, but in the end this was the right decision. Greensboro will now look forward to hosting the USATF Masters Outdoor Championships in a future year.”
Jerry Bookin-Weiner, Interim Chair of the USATF Masters Track & Field Committee said, “On behalf of the USATF Masters Committee and our Greensboro Host Organization, we want to emphasize that our number one priority is the health and well-being of all participants in our USATF Masters Outdoor Championships. With that objective in mind, and given the great uncertainty and concern surrounding the current worldwide coronavirus pandemic, we jointly determined that it is in the best interests of everyone involved to cancel the Outdoor Championships this year.”
