December 14, 2007

Organizers of the AT&T Austin Marathon have decided that their 2008 event, scheduled for Sunday, February 17, will employ a unique international team challenge format for the first time.   Co-ed squads from the USA, Canada, Great Britain, and Mexico will compete for $33,000 in team prize money.  Teams of two men and two women will be scored based on the best three finishers by gender based only on place (cross country scoring); finish time will not factor into the scoring.

Each team will receive a small appearance fee and prize money will be paid to teams as follows: $15,000-10,000-5,000-3,000.

Teams will be organized by each country's federation.  The USA team will be selected by the men's and women's long distance running committees of USATF based on the following selection criteria:

Men's At-Large Selections: Two (2) positions will be offered (based on rank order of finish) among sub-2:20 finishers at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials Men's Marathon held on November 3, 2007; final position(s) will be offered based on a list of performances from January 1, 2007 through November 18, 2007.

Women's At-Large Selections: Two (2) positions will be offered based on a time list of sub-2:47 marathon performances from January 1, 2007 through November 18, 2007.

Interested USA athletes or their representatives should contact Jim Estes, USATF Senior Manager of LDR/Marketing, at [email protected] or 317-713-4661 for consideration BY DECEMBER 21.
