Travel Information

The USATF National Office Staff is primarily responsible for athlete travel for the World Championship Team. In order to accommodate individual travel needs, USATF is offering two options for air travel.

OPTION 1 - USATF Travel Department
An athlete may elect to have USATF book his/her ticket. USATF will pay for a roundtrip ticket from the athlete’s home city to London or to the training camp site and back to the home city. USATF will ticket the lowest airfare based on a reasonable travel itinerary. Under this option, athletes who make the team at the USATF Outdoor Track & Field Championships and have chosen to have USATF ticket their flight must do so at team processing in Sacramento or no later than June 30, 2017 by contacting
Athletes who are eligible to chase the standard per the selection procedures must book their travel immediately upon meeting the standard but no later than July 22, 2017 at 12:00 noon Eastern Time.  Athletes who request USATF to book their tickets after the above deadlines must take Option 2.  Athletes who wish to deviate from a true round trip ticket are responsible for any additional cost and may wish to consider travel option 2.

OPTION 2 - Travel Stipend to Athlete/ Athlete Representative/Coach
An athlete’s athlete representative/coach or the athlete himself/herself may purchase the athlete’s airline ticket and receive a travel stipend (amount TBD) from USATF.  A full travel itinerary and a copy of the ticket receipt showing cost must be sent to no later than July 15th in order to receive the travel stipend, with the exception of those chasing the standard. USATF will reimburse the athlete/agent or coach after the World Championships are over and the athlete has competed. If the athlete does not compete at the World Championships, USATF will decide, depending upon the reason for not competing, if the travel stipend will be paid.
Note: If an athlete fails to select an option at team processing or changes his/her option after June 30th, USATF will only reimburse the athlete per the process outlined in Option 2.  Changes after ticketing are at the expense of the athlete.
