    It doesn't appear that USATF has set that yet.

    Traditionally it's been around mid- or late-May, often coordinated with the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

    However, if you're aiming for the marathon, the Trials for that are in the late winter or early spring, so you'll have to qualify for that maybe 8 months before the Trials -- no one can run a qualifying time at the NYC Marathon in November, then do the Trials in, say, February.
