I'd like to see USATF provide ANY funding for road championships. Currently it is the race (local organizing committee) that funds the championships-- prize money, hotels/travel for elites and even anti-doping.
Last year I believe prize money was doubled for outdoor track champs. Great!!! But still no funding for road championships.
what about the national championship in Alexandria? Was the prize money provided by pacers?
That is the one exception- sorry my post was inaccurate earlier: the .US 12K is USATF funded (well, with help from the sponsor, .US).
XC (club and us champs) as well as MUT champs are also solely funded by the LOC.
