   Our USATF Membership Policy   

The Heartbreak Hill Striders are a small part of a much greater community of runners throughout the United States.  We believe strongly that one of the best ways to show support for our sport and this larger community is by having all of our members simultaneously enjoy membership in USA Track & Field (USATF).

Several years ago our members approved a proposal to automatically enroll all Heartbreak Hill Striders members in USATF - New England. The annual membership fee for USATF is $30, effective January 1, 2007.  New and renewing members must complete the USATF - New England application form at the time they complete and submit the club's membership application form.  The club then handles all administrative details related to submitting applications and payments to USATF. 

USATF is the National Governing Body for track and field, long-distance running and race walking in the United States Just a few of the ways USATF serves our sport include:

  • Establishing grassroots programs, such as Junior Olympics to help develop future leaders in the field.
  • Developing, selecting and leading Team USA - the World's #1 team - at the Olympics, World Championships and many
    other international events each year. Roughly 700 athletes of all ages wear a Team USA uniform in any given year.
  • Promoting programs of training and competition for men and women and boys and girls of all ages.
  • Establishing and enforcing the rules and regulations of our sport.
  • Sanctioning more than 4,000 events each year.
  • Providing insurance to sanctioned events, member clubs and member-athletes.
  • Certifying race courses for accuracy and validating records.

USATF is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization. "Card-carrying" members of USATF and its subsidiary organization, USATF -  New England, receive an array of benefits, including automatic scoring in Grand Prix club events, insurance benefits, discounts on subscriptions to track and field and fitness-related magazines, and reduced prices on a variety of other items.

One immense benefit to HHS runners is that USATF enables clubs to purchase Event Insurance. HHS would not be able to run indoors at Babson or to use the Cross Fit facility after the Boston Marathon without delivering a Certificate of Insurance to the property owners. Our use of each of these sites entails contractual obligations, one of which is a Certificate of Insurance. USATF gives us the ability to do this.

Members also receive USATF membership publications and can access the "Members Only" section of the USATF web site. The site offers information on every aspect of our sport, including elite athlete and Hall of Fame biographies, event information and results, late-breaking news and other topics of interest, in addition to vital membership details and contact information.
