USAT - Pacific Northwest Region - Sanctioning Assistance
April 28, 2011 by Mitch Horton
USAT-PNW recognizes and values the need for more sanctioned races in the PNW. Money has been budgeted to assist with sanctioning fees for races that have never sanctioned with USAT or would who would like to return to sanctioning but are overwhelmed by race costs. Race safety and fairness are the two biggest motivators for racing at a USAT sanctioned event. The ability to be ranked nationally with athletes is only possible by racing at sanctioned races. If you are a race director please submit your sanctioning request to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are an athlete looking for more sanctioned races in the PNW then please contact your favorite race director and ask them about sanctioning with USAT.
Deadline for sanctioning reimbursement assistance is May 15. Please include the following information with your request:
1. Years race has been held
2. Number of participants in past two years
3. Does the race have a certified race director?
4. Please write a paragraph on what you perceive the value of sanctioning with USAT will be to your race.
