2021 National Senior Games delayed until 2022
In normal years, the National Senior Games Association organizes meets in each state (here the West Virginia Senior Sports Classic, or WVSSC, is the state meet in the NSGA series) and holds National Senior Games every other Year. The last Senior Games was in Albuquerque, NM in mid-June, 2019. The next National NSGA meet will be held in May 10-23, 2022 in Greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In 2020, most states cancelled their State Games which qualified participants for the NSGA Games. It is not yet known which states may offer qualifying meets in 2021. Qualification rules have been changed to allow those with no opportunity to qualify to compete. See the NSGA site for the Covid-19 Rules for this event here.
There are also other Track and Field organizations who organize meets, including the State Games of America, and the Huntsman Senior Games. These meets were cancelled for 2020. This site will post upcoming meet and other information of interest to WV Masters and encourage contributions from those interested in Masters Running, T&F, and Racewalking. Contributions may be event listings, News about events, pictures and other information or articles which would interest other athletes.
Future Events (will be updated after USATF Annual Meeting Dec 3-7, 2020)
