From Etowah, our meet host:
Some last minute details. Below is an overhead view of the track with some comical mark ups on it for reference.  As you can see, two of the three gates for access to the track will be locked.  Only the eastern one will be open for access.  There will be a monitor there as only athletes and coaches are allowed on the field.  This will be strictly controlled.

There will be no parking allowed at the west end of the track near the shot put pit.  This is reserved for EYTC coaches, officials and the timing company only.  No one will be allowed to park along the access road on the west end of the track.  If available, you can park in the tennis courts parking lot to the south but there are minimal spots.  Otherwise, please use the main school parking lot.   There is no construction going on this year but the routes have changed slight.  There are signs and you do use the main entrance.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow.

List of Running Events
Note about "estimated" times: With the exception of the 3000m run, we cannot tell you with certainty when a particular running event will start.  The "pace" of the meet depends on the number of athletes competing, the number of heats required, and the ability of the meet hosts to keep things running quickly.  This is referred to as a "rolling start"; the next event is started when the previous event is completed.  We hope to improve our estimates once we know how many total athletes have entered the meet (this information should be available after the meet deadline.)  See document below for a more detailed estimated schedule [as of 5/1/2014 4:45 pm].
  • 3000m run - start time 8:30 am
    • USATF Rule 301 - Only athletes in the 11-12 age division (and older) are eligible for the 3000m run.
