Meet Entry
  • Meet entry deadline was Wednesday, April 27, 8:00 pm.
  • Meet entry page for Alpha Crush athletes can be found here.
  • Meet Program [Download] [View].  Note that in the 3000m, 1500m and 800m some events are combined but are not indicated as such in the program.  Coach Matthew's estimate details (see below) show the combined events.  Different age groups and genders are run concurrently on the track, but are scored separately.  For example, it doesn't make sense to run one 15-16 girl in a separate heat in the 3000m; we'll have her run with the 13-14 & 17-18 girls.

      • Step 3 - Coach O data is downloaded and imported into Hy-Tek Meet Manager
      • This is the meet database.  These are the "real" entries.
      • Don't worry about your seed times or "NM" (no mark.)  When Coach Matthew entered the data into Coach O he did not use times or marks from previous seasons.  In future meets, Coach Matthew will use times and marks from this season's meets.
    • The difference between the what you asked for and what you are entered in:
      • Exceeding the "Event limits" described below
      • Relays - we didn't have enough interest for us to enter teams of 4; though, on Saturday, if we have enough interest, at the end of day we can run the relay.
  • Only athletes, background checked and Safe Sport verified coaches and volunteers allowed on the field.
  • There will be a $2.00 parking fee if parking close to the stadium.  There is free parking a bit further away.
  • Remember that the Alpha Crush registration fee covers your meet entries.

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.

Coach Matthew's estimates based on number of entries and time it takes to complete a race.  When will your event start?  Look below...
