NEW FOR 2024

Elite 3200m Heat Sponsored by PR Running Camp

We will accept the top 16 entries for a single 3200m heat.  We will update the entry standard as registration goes on to reflect what the cutoff just beyond 16 runners would to have some on a waitlist.  Athletes that just miss the 3200m cut-off will be able to be added to the Mile or 800m.   

Field Events

We have USATF officials set to run each field event for 2024.  We will have prelim flights followed by finals in the throws and horizontal jumps. 

Sponsors: New Balance | Fleet Feet Charlotte

The event is open to all athletes of all abilities. Our goal is for the event to range from athletes looking to chase state-leading marks, to JV athletes looking to close the season with a PR against a field full of athletes with similar abilities.

If you have any questions on the event or need assistance registering, email the meet director at  If you have interest in bringing your team or athletes to the event send us an email to make sure we're sanctioned for you well in advance!

Sanctioned States



We will have an awards bag for the top 3 in each overall race provided by our sponsors, New Balance, Fleet Feet, and COROS!


We will seed using the MileSplit Database using 2024 Season Best from Indoor or Outdoor Track. Athletes' season-best and personal best in the 800m, 1600m, and 3200m will be considered when seeding heats.

Registration will open on January 8th, 2024 and will close on Sunday, April 14th at 10 PM. While registration will close we will update seeds on Sunday night once that week's results are in the database so updated seasons best are included in the seeding. Please email in any scratches after registration closes so we can accurately build heats and meet schedule.
