Now, because of issues like this, I choose to run without a membership.
Those fees to host a championship race are outrageous. No wonder very few clubs want to take on the risk. USATF should be ashamed of themselves.

Bend Oregon is virtually impossible to get to from the east coast.
Yet, 7 USATF national championships of various distances have been there in the past three years.
Tallahassee had a great course, and great organization.

Similar number to San Fran for Lehigh between 1700-1800.
For future reference itt is San Francisco or "The City." It is also acceptable to abrieviate to SF.
But never is it San Fran, just like it is not Cali.
Bull shite.......It's Frisco!

Back in Lexington, KY.
For what its worth. Last year in San Fran 1752 total runners finished.
Today in Florida 879 finished.
Lets bring it back to the west coast.
Yeah, Lexington next year the Spokane the year after.
I thought Tallahassee was great btw. Not quite as easy to get to as some other cities, but overall I really enjoyed my experience there. The course was pretty and spectator friendly, and the weather was great for both spectators and racers. Went down to the Gulf of Mexico the day after the race and got to hike along the ocean in a beautiful wildlife refuge, spotting alligators and all kinds of cool stuff like that. Really loved it there.
