WE'VE MISSED YOU! Thank you to all of our athletes, parents, supporters, and fans for their support throughout the pandemic. We appreciate your understanding that this is a fluid situation, and local regulations and conditions will dictate facilities and policies that will impact NIRCA events.

For the Fall 2021 season, Nationals participation requirements/criteria for club and individual participation will be waived. All NIRCA fall season meets will be considered Non-Qualifiers.

Please note that NIRCA athletes must still meet eligibility criteria as members of their running clubs and be full-time students at their universities in good academic standing.

Individuals and clubs are encouraged to participate only up to their comfort level with travel and competition, and within the policies set by their universities or club sports departments. NIRCA is committed to the safety and well-being of all of its athletes and spectators; the organization is subject to the facility and local/state health department regulations where events will be hosted. We are committed to following these guidelines in the planning and execution of the event. And, by attending a NIRCA event, all attendees agree to adhere to those guidelines which will be communicated to clubs and on the NIRCA Races page.
