- The runner must have primary registration in SDIAC during the Olympic Marathon Trials qualifying period.
- The runner must meet the qualifying standard and participate in the Marathon Trial.

The Men's Committee has designated the Rancho Bernardo 10K road race, the SDIAC Association Cross Country Championships, and the 1985 Mission Bay Marathon as the championship series for 1984, and announced a point system and cash awards.
