Basic Meet Information

We are excited to be able to put on an elite meet to showcase some of the top athletes in North Carolina and surrounding states. Our goal is to put on a high-level meet with some of the top student athletes in and around North Carolina. At this time this meet is only sanctioned for schools from North Carolina and the bordering states.No unattached athletes will be allowed to compete.

The meet will not include a team competition.

We will be limiting entries to the top 15-20 entries per track event.All relays and field events will be capped at 16 entries.We will be running unique events (including an elite mile, 5000 meter run, and DMR) along with some of the more standard events for high school track meets.There have been a handful of teams invited who will be given the opportunity to enter 3 athletes per event.We will then fill the remainder of the events from individuals who enter the meet.Meet management reserves the right to make final decisions regarding accepted entries and heat placement.

Our facilities do not allow for elite competitions in the pole vault or discus and so these events will not be included in the meet program.Included events and suggested standards can be found at the further down this information sheet.
