NACAC Road Race Championships
The IAAF missed the boat in respect of harnessing the vast potential of Road Racing. Within the NACAC Area it is being proposed that the organisation introduce a Road Race Programme, beginning with an annual 10K and gradually adding new events.
Of all of the athletic events held annually among MFs of the IAAF road racing seems to be most capable of attracting major sponsorships and from the widest possible sources.
The organisation of NACAC-wide road races would inevitably redound unto the financial well being of the organisation while ensuring an overall improvement in the profile of our sport and of the NACAC itself.
