After a successful reception in 2015 the Friday Night Lights 10k is back!
The Western Mass Distance Project and the Greater Boston Track Club are teaming up to bring the second edition of New England’s favorite 10k – the Friday Night Lights 10k. This year’s event will host the much anticipate Elite Women’s 10k and Elite Men’s 10k under the lights. New to this year’s event we will be hosting open heats to kick off the event.
The Friday Night Lights will serve as the 2016 USAT-NE Open and Master's 10,000m Championship. 10,000m placing's, by division, will be used for the 10,000m score of the full USATF-NE Outdoor Track Championships hosted the following Friday, July 29th. The FNL 10k will host a Master's* heat and as many open heats as needed to accommodate all entrants. This event can be used for the track 10,000m as part of the USATF-NE ATR Series.
Register by July 18, 2016 with a 10k or strong equivalent time run within the last two years. All entries will be accepted and heat sheets will be made available two days before the event.
*Should any Master's runners qualify for the Elite Section of the FNL 10k they will not be eligible for Master's scoring for the USAT-NE Championships purposes.
