Questions from the Week

  1. I am a Gold Cup member, but I haven't been scored... What do I do?
    First, please check that you have purchased the Gold Cup upgrade. You can confirm this HERE. However, if you have purchased the upgrade, but still have issues, please contact the Statistician who will investigate. (She is human and can make mistakes).
  2. Why am I being scored in the (...) age group? Shouldn't I be in the (...) age group?
    You age group for the entire Gold Cup season is based on your age on July 1, 2022. 
  3. I see one of the award categories is "age graded". What is that?
    You can read about age grading at https://usatfmasters.org/age-grading/ . If you have any other questions, please feel free to talk to our Statistician (Emily-Rose) at any Gold Cup race this season.
  4. What discounts am I eligible for?
    This depends on if you are a basic member, or if you have purchased the Gold Cup upgrade. Gold Cup members receive discounts on every race on our Gold Cup schedule. If you haven't purchased this upgrade, you can still receive discounts on purchases at Running Warehouse (Code: CALREGSNID) and ROADiD (see above). Sponsored races are NOT required to give discounts to our members, however, if available, all members are eligible for this discount.
