Races will be run in the evening across three different divisions (Open, Frosh-Soph and Varsity), with the faster races being held later at night. This event will also include a Unified 400 dash.

Entry process
1. Entry submission will be through Milesplit. Entry opens on the morning of March 1, 2017.
2. Coaches will enter athletes in the 800, 1600 or 3200 (not FS 800 or Varsity 1600). Athletes will be placed in a division during seeding. Athletes can be entered in one event (only), not multiple events. If an athlete does not have a grade level listed and the athlete is not seeded into a Varsity division race, then that athlete will be entered in the open 800 or 1600 – regardless of their seed time.
** 3200m entries. As there is only a Varsity division 3200 and no 3200 in any other division, athletes entered in the 3200 who do not make the top 20 cutoff in the Varsity 3200 will be moved to section 1 or 2 of the Open 1600.
3. Entries may close prior to the entry deadline if the meet (or an event) reaches capacity.

Seeding:
** Varsity races: 16 fastest entries in the 800 and 1600 and 20 fastest entries in the 3200, based on verifiable season bests from the 2017 indoor/outdoor season (including indoor performances from December, 2016).
** Frosh-Soph races will include the 16 fastest Freshmen and Sophomores entries in the 800 and 1600, not seeded into a Varsity race and based on verifiable season bests from the 2017 indoor/outdoor season (including indoor performances from December, 2016).
** Open races include athletes not seeded into a Frosh-Soph or Varsity race (see note above about 3200m entries).

The entry process on which seeding is based has been set up so that seed times are reported as Spring/Outdoor season bests. If athletes have a 2017 Winter/Indoor season best that is better than their 2017 Spring/Outdoor season best, then please contact Coach Haworth (email below) with the athlete's Winter/Indoor season best, the meet where the season best was achieved, and meet date.

Seeding will reflect all published performances through Saturday, April 29. If a meet does not publish results prior to seeding, then we cannot use those results to seed athletes. Relay splits are not used for seeded, as relay splits are not included in published results.

If coaches have athletes in Varsity or Frosh-Soph races that cannot compete, then please provide that information as soon as possible prior to the meet. Coaches should not show up on meet day with large numbers of scratches.

Communication. All communication regarding this meet must be conducted (only) via email.
