Who We Are
Mid-Atlantic is the local association of USA Track & Field, the national governing body for track and field, long-distance running and race walking in the United States.
USATF encompasses the world’s oldest organized sports, the most-watched events of Olympic broadcasts, the No. 1 high school and junior high school participatory sport and more than 30 million adult runners in the United States.
USATF Mid-Atlantic, one of 58 local associations, serves the state of Pennsylvania east of and including Potter, Clinton, Centre, Huntingdon and Bedford counties and the state of Delaware.
The Mid-Atlantic Association is led by President Cynthia Young and is managed by an Executive Committee that meets quarterly to chart the organization’s goals and direction. USATF supports the association’s membership, sanctioning and programming efforts.
Both locally and nationally, USATF is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization.
