All of the 600 wins will be meet records as this is the first year we’ve run a 600 in the meet.

 

This is the eighth meet (5 outdoor, 3 indoor), in the series.  


This has become a really fun meet at the track as it is a chance for us to do something different and break up the monotony of doing workouts week after week.  A lot of runners have been kept on the same teams for each meet, and a good rivalry has developed between our three teams:   Black Bears, Orange Crush, and Red Dragons.

 

As with past  meets, if an unassigned runner comes we'll assign them to a team so that the numbers are even or as close to even as possible.
