Description:
USA Track & Field (USATF) is the United States national governing body for the sports of track and field, cross country running, road running and racewalking (known as the sport of athletics outside the US). The USATF was known for a number of years as The Athletics Congress (TAC) after its spin off from the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), which governed the sport in the US through most of the 20th century until the Amateur Sports Act of 1978 dissolved its responsibility.

Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, USATF is a non-profit organization with a membership of nearly 100,000. The organization is led by an elected President and a full time Executive Director/CEO. The CEO position has been vacant since July 2010 with the termination of the contract with Doug Logan. It is currently being filled on an interim basis by COO Michael McNees while an executive search is conducted. USA Track & Field is involved in many aspects of the sport at the local, national, and international level – coaching education, sports science and athlete development, youth programs, masters (age 40+) competition, the National Track & Field Hall of Fame, and an annual meeting. It also organises the annual USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
