Special Notes: We will have F.A.T. cameras at the 1500/1600/3000/3200 marks and Mile/2 Mile finish for the invitational sections of the Mile/Two Mile. For certain invitational events we will have en route F.A.T. splits as well.Sanctioning

This sanction has been approved for: VA, MD, DC, NC, OH, TX, FL, PA, RI, MA, NJ, NY, GA, DE and CT. We are waiting to hear back from AL, KY and TN. We expect to be sanctioned by all of them but will update this list as they approve or deny the sanction.

    Illinois is currently denied sanctioning. New Hampshire is not having a sanctioned season and thus public schools will not be sanctioned this year.

    Invitational Events: These events include everything except the 4x800 which will be run right before the start of Saturday's Invitational events. Normal timed finals that are run fast-to-slow. Invitational events will be the top 10-15 or top flight of athletes entered into each event. These events will be run off at the exact time listed on the time schedule. In events where there are multiple sections the event will run slow-to-fast and in distance races have the top seed on the far outside. We release the invitational entries immediately following the closing of registration. In the 4x200 and 300 we will be running lanes 3-6. Seeding for lanes will be done by meet management and based on a combination of current season bests and realistic predictions of what someone could run if they do not have a time. Preference of lanes for lane races on the oval are 5-4-6-3-2-1.
