Track & Field
The primary mission of the Las Vegas Elite Runners is to provide an athletic alternative to all youth wanting to excel in the areas of running, cross country, track and field, multi events, academics, mental and spiritual health and expose them to opportunities of extended educational scholarships and grants.
Per USATF, youth competitions typically take place in two-year age divisions. These age divisions provide young athletes the opportunity to compete with other athletes of similar ability.
The age divisions for competition year 2021 & 2022 for Track and Field and Cross Country are as follows:
* Per USATF Rule 300.1 (c) “Athletes must be at least seven (7) years of age on December 31 of the current year to compete at the Youth Athletics or Junior Olympic National Championships.”
** Athletes who are still 18 through the final day of the USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships are eligible to compete in the 17-18 age division through that meet. This extended eligibility does not apply to cross country events.
