USATF Foundation Assists Elite Athletes with Workout Equipment During Covid-19 Crisis

The USATF Foundation and USATF are partnering in this time of need to donate funds for elite track & field athletes to purchase portable training equipment during the Covid-19 crisis.  Many states and/or local municipalities have placed restrictions on facilities where larger groups can gather, such as gyms and weight rooms directly affecting our athlete’s ability to remain dedicated to their training.

To assist in bridging the gap between now and when restrictions are lifted and normal weight room access can occur, funds will be allocated to each Tier and TPP athlete in the amount of $400 towards the purchase of portable weight training equipment to use at home or at the track.

“During this unfortunate crisis we want to give these athletes every opportunity to stay on top of their training while they focus on the next Olympic Games,” stated USATF Foundation CEO Tom Jackovic.



The USA Track & Field Foundation provides a means to attract and guide funds to new and innovative track & field programs with an emphasis on providing opportunities for youth athletes, emerging elite athletes, and distance training centers. The Foundation depends upon donations from its Board of Directors, major gifts and from generous fans of track & field.

Elite athletes are supported by the Foundation via monetary grants and participation in Run With US! Youth athletes are supported via monetary grants to youth clubs.
