The Carolinas Track and Field Club, headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, has
membership across both North and South Carolina, and competes under USA Track & Field
at the Masters level. Masters Track & Field is for ages 30 and older, with competition
in five-year age brackets (30-34, 35-39, 40-44, etc.). CTFC members' ages range
from 19 to 80+, with overall membership being around 100 track and field enthusiasts.
The full schedule of track and field events recognized by USATF
are included in the competition.
Club membership is open to enthusiasts of all skill levels, from beginner to elite.
Many members are returning to the sport after a long absence. Some members are in
serious training programs for national competition, and some are just out for fun
- to enjoy the fellowship and fresh air. CTFC practices at the Irwin Belk Track
at University of North Carolina at Charlotte on Tuesdays & Thursdays beginning at 5pm
and Saturdays beginning at 10am in the late Fall through the Winter, and 9am from late
Spring through the Summer. Some members supplement scheduled club practices by training
on additional days during the week. Others choose to train individually and attend
the meets that we host. Many members travel to USATF meets in the southeast, as well as
to USATF Indoor and Outdoor Regional and/or National Masters Championship meets.
