NCRunners Middle School Invitational Scheduled For May 5th!

NCRunners Middle School Invitational Meet Page

NCRunners and Cuthbertson Middle School Track Coach Kirk Walsh are excited to announce the first ever NCRunners Middle School Invitational!  The event is open to all North Carolina Middle School's on Saturday, May 5th at Cuthbertson High School Track in Waxhaw!  There will be a ZERO dollar entry fee for the event! The meet will be open to all middle schools, public, private, charter you name it!

The meet will build off the former meet, the North Carolina Middle School Championships, in hopes to bring all of North Carolina's Middle School talent to one track.  Team awards will be given to the Team Champion and Runner-Up teams for each gender, and medals will be given to the Individual Champion in each event.

The meet will feature all events competed at the high school level except for Pole Vault, which the majority of middle school programs don't have.  Athletes will have to represent their Middle School team, meaning no club teams or unattached runners.  Hurdle heights will be 33" for the boys 110m Hurdles and 30" for the Girls 100m Hurdles, Girls 300m Hurdles, and Boys 300m Hurdles.  We know not all schools compete in events such as the 4x800m, 3200m and 300m Hurdles; we can help figure out approximate seed times for those athletes using PRs from similar events if you wish to debut athletes in these events at the NCRunners Middle School Invitational.

The meet will follow the High School Outdoor Track Order of Events.

4x800m Relay
110/100m Hurdles
100m Dash
4x200m Relay
4x100m Relay
400m Dash
300m Hurdles
800m Run
200m Dash
3200m Run
4x400m Relay

The current plan for the meet is to allow 5 athletes per school per individual event and 1 relay, with each event capped at the top 50 athletes per track event and 35 athletes for field events.  The meet will be run under FAT timing provided by Big Kahuna Timing.

Entries will be done through NCRunners, and seed times will need to be in the MileSplit database in order to register for the event.  Results can come from any meet you compete at during the outdoor track season, Dual Meets or your County Championships.  If you need a team page set up, or need to get your results into the database, you can send us an email at  We'll be happy to help with any registration issues you come across.
