We're excited to announce that we'll be hosting the NCRunners Twilight meet on May 29th at Gaston Christian School. During the day our annual NCRunners Middle School Invitational will take place, and at the conclusion of that event, we're going to kickoff the Discus and Shot Put and then the 800m and 1600m events under the lights. We will have top entries, or "Elite" athletes compete in their own section for the throwing events as well as an open section of both the Discus and the Shot Put.
Athletes will have to compete unattached and results from this meet WILL NOT be allowed to be used for NCHSAA Regional Qualifying and you will not be allowed to compete in a high school-issued uniform.
We'll have a final schedule released once registration closes and we see how many entries we have in each event, but tentatively we will start throws around 3:30-4 PM and distance events starting around 6 PM seeded "slow to fast." Distance events will start with the 800m and follow up with the 1600m once those are completed.
Mitchell Timing will be providing Live Results and the event.
Cost is $10 per athlete, which covers both throwing events. Payment will need to be done through Paypal prior to the registration deadline which is set up through our online registration. The registration deadline is set for May 24th, 2021 at Midnight.
You can enter athletes from your school like normal and we will adjust the teams to unattached after the fact, or have them set up under a club and we'll have bibs with athletes' names on them for your athletes together, or they can pick them up individually at the event.
It's been a weird last year for track & field and we're excited we can provide a great environment for athletes to go after personal best or any season goals they've had set for themself! Also with a later state meet date more distance runners won't have many opportunities to compete in any end-of-season races before gearing up for the 2021 cross country season.
Feel free to reach out to email@example.com for any questions about the event or if you'd be able to help volunteer with anything during the event.
