We know that our meet falls early in the midseason of the outdoor season, giving very few chances for actual performances to be hit. Instead, we ask you to enter athletes who on their BEST day are capable of hitting the marks. Please be honest. A young man who runs in 400 meters in 72 seconds probably isn't going to hit the suggested mark. Neither is that 5:09 miler for boys.

 

Meet Standards -Please Enter Athletes Who Can Meet These Performances.

We have revised our meet standards to better reflect our clientele. Please enter those athletes (and only those athletes) who you feel are "capable of meeting the following standards".

In the past we have a lenient policy, but please don't abuse it. If you think an athlete is close to these marks, he or she should be entered. If you think on his or her best day the mark could be within reach, again, feel free to enter that athlete. If there is no way an athlete could come close to the mark, please...please...please... don't enter him or her.

Again, please enter athletes who you feel will be able to hit these standards.

*Again this year, we are limiting the number of athletes in certain events. We will have the following number of runners in each of these races:

  800 Meters - 60 athletes                 
1600 Meters - 45 athletes            
3200 Meters - 30 athletes.

** STARTING IN 2016 WE WILL LIMIT THE 400 METERS TO THE TOP 80 ENTRIES. We will use times from the previous indoor and outdoor seasons to determine our list.

We are accepting actual times only. Results will be accepted from (a) Loucks 2015, (b) early outdoors 2016, (c) indoors 2015-16. Yes, our committe will convert indoor distances.
AGAIN, NO ESTIMATED SEED TIMES WILL BE ALLOWED. Those who do not make the cut off will be placed on a Provisional Starter List, moving up to compete as scratches are listed.   

**Teams are allowed 2 entries in each of these events: all F/S RACES, Open DMR (not the East Coast), Nick Panaro Relays.
