Meets are fun for the whole family!
Meets generally consist of one event of varying distance per age group; generally 0.75 mile for grades 3-4, 1.25 miles for grades 5-6, and 1.75+ miles for grades 7-8. There is also normally a short distance fun run for 2nd Grade and younger. Meets are generally 2-3 hours in length, followed by an awards ceremony.
We generally attend 5-6 invitational meets.
Meets generally comprise multiple distance running events from 100-1600 meters and field events; including the turbo-jav, long jump, and shotput. There is also normally a short distance fun run for 2nd Grade and younger. Meets are generally 6 hours in length, but you need only attend the portions in which your runner will participate.
We generally attend 3 invitational meets and 1 dual meet.
