Information Provided by Meet Director
We look forward to hosting you on Saturday, April 29! As you are registering athletes for the Creekview/Cherokee Youth Track Invitational, I wanted to make sure that you have noticed that the order of events for this meet differs significantly from the first two meets of the season and the start time for running events is slightly different as well. In alignment with USATF standards, we will again this year restrict entrance to the infield to coaches and Cherokee/Creekview volunteers helping to run our meet. With all four field events accessible from the infield, this is a much larger issue at our track. To manage this, we will be issuing wristbands, which will be in your coaches/bib packet at packet pick up at the Creekview Tent.
Entry Deadline - Tuesday, 4/25/2023, 8:00 pm
Competitors may enter a maximum of three individual events.
Additionally, Competitors may also enter the 4x100 and/or 4x400 relay events. Historically, Alpha Crush does not typically have enough entries to form a relay team. But, if you stick around to the end when relays are run, we can try to find a team to put you on.

List of Running Events
With the exception of the first running event, 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.
Having said that, following the meet entry deadline, Coach Matthew will prepare and provide a link to a spreadsheet that lists estimated starting times for each event. These time estimates are based on experience of how long a particular event takes, the order in which the events occur, and the number of athletes entered in each event..
Note the "as of date/time" in the footer of the report.
Estimates are more accurate after registration closes and Coach Matthew has had time to process the data.
