Seeding: All races will be seeded based on the times that coaches enter. Please enter last year's personal best or a recent time from a time trial. You may want to seed new athletes to the sport with "no time". The last section of each event will be the "fast" section.

Elite Mile Run: We are trying to put together a field of at least 8+ runners for each of these races...girls who have run under 5:50 and boys under 4:50 for 1600m/mile run. Coaches should only enter athletes in these events who have run under the entry standards indoors or outdoors last season.

Teams are not required to wear official track uniforms since this is a pre-season scrimmage. A school identifying t-shirt is suggested but not required.

Our school has a Mondo track surface.

Entries will done on SCRunners.

Sprinters or distance runners can be entered in the 4x400 relay. We encourage you to bring a group of sprinters for the relay.

Entry fee: $30 covers both boys and girls. This will help to cover costs for security, parking, coaches'lunches, etc. There will also be a small admission charge for spectators of $2.

Parking: Buses can drop off athletes in the circle near the tennis courts and then park in the lot across from the softball and baseball fields. Parents should park in this lot (across from softball/baseball fields) and walk down to the track. Handicap or elderly will be allowed to park closer to the track.
