2006 AADP Events

USATF also taking advantage of an existing program called AADP. This is the Association Athlete Development Program. AADP is designed to offer up-and-coming runners and "local elites" the opportunity to compete in the USATF National Championship events as elite athletes and with financial support. The program is a three-way partnership between the participating races (who pony-up travel money, hotel rooms, free entries, ground transport, meals, etc.), us at the Association level who select athletes and the Long Distance Running Committee, the Men's AADP Coordinator, administers the program. Nearly all AADP participants come away from the events with a new, positive attitude toward post-collegiate running and their place in it. The money offered to offset expenses is between $100-$200 depending on the race. These athletes will be considered by the Long Distance Running Committee. Other considerations are availability and meeting the standards set for qualification.
