The same folks who bring you the Eastern Relays (https://easternrelays.milesplit.com/) during outdoor track season and the Louisville XC Classic (https://louisvillexcclassic.milesplit.com/) during cross country season are bringing the Eastern Indoors in 2023.
The goal of Eastern Indoors is bringing together the best high school athletes from the Midwest and the Southeast (and anywhere else) to compete on one of the nations newest and fastest tracks at the Norton Sports and Learning Complex in Louisville, KY (https://www.nortonslc.com/).

Eastern Indoors Entry Procedures & Standards
Entry to the meet will be based on lifetime best performance. Athletes can earn guaranteed entry by meeting the qualifying times below, then we will fill the remaining field using a descending order list.
All entries must be submitted electronically using the entry portal at http://easternindoors.milesplit.com. It is important that valid results for your team are included on the milesplit database.

Coaches may enter any athletes who have a verifiable PR (lifetime best indoor or outdoor) in the milesplit database that meets the guaranteed entry standard. After all guaranteed entries we will fill the field to our desired field size with athletes outside the automatic qualifying standard. Coaches are encouraged to enter high caliber athletes who have not met the automatic qualifying standards. As we draw closer to the meet, we will give coaches an opportunity to scratch athletes not in a position to qualify. Final seeding and acceptance decisions are at the discretion of meet management and will be determined after the entry period is closed.
