Is there a rain makeup date? There seems to be a big chance of rain today and tomorrow.

The rain itself won't be too big of a problem, but there may be windy conditions that'll surely affect times!

JJ Knox and the staff at Eastern Alamance did a phenomenal job on Saturday running the JJ Knox Track and Field Classic. Despite the challenges of potential threatening weather and intermittent mist and rain, the meet was run in an efficient manner and all of the teams left better for participating. Once again, great job. Coach Tyre

Agreed. Great job running the meet. Lots of PRs, region qualifying efforts, good competition. The officials and kids didn't let the weather affect them. I am curious about the starting lines relative to exchange zone. Can someone shed light on the length of the track?
