The USATF Pacific Foundation is pleased to announce the 2023 Marathon Training Grant. We will award up to 5 training grants to help offset the costs of training, travel, and recovery for marathoners intending to compete in a marathon this fall. This grant is targeted towards athletes who are training to qualify for or compete in the Olympic Marathon Trials in Orlando, FL in February 2024.
Athletes must be current members of the Pacific Association. Preference will be given to athletes who meet one of the following performance standards: Women: 2:37:00 marathon or 1:12:00 half marathon, Men: 2:18:00 marathon or 1:03:00 half marathon. If athletes have not met the standard, they still may be eligible for a grant based on competitiveness and potential for future representation on a US Team. Qualifying performances must be attained between January 1, 2022 and September 20, 2023
Applications will be accepted via google form on our website until September 20, 2023.
The USATF Pacific Foundation provides grants for help with training and competition to United States Olympic hopefuls competing in track & field and race walking. The grant is named in memory of a founder and former president of the Foundation, George Kleeman. George dedicated much of his time and financial assets in the creation of a grant program to benefit athletes and coaches in the Pacific Association. George passed away in 2018 but his legacy lives on in all parts of USA Track and Field.
All post collegiate Pacific Association athletes are encouraged to apply. Athletes who have met the 2023 “Automatic” standard for USATF Outdoor Championships will be given highest priority for grants. Applicants who have not met the automatic standard will be considered by the committee on a case by case basis. All qualifying performances must be attained between January 1, 2022 and May 21, 2023. Spring grants awarded to Track and Field athletes aiming to compete at US and World Championships.
Your contribution will enable us to support Pacific Association athletes.
