Cooper 3,200 Meter Championship

Union, KY
Hosted by Cooper

Meet Information

Online Registration Instructions

WHEN: Saturday

May 23, 2020, beginning at 9:00 AM.

WHAT: The 3200 will be the only event contested, and the meet should take less than an hour total. Heats will be mixed gender, with male and female athletes seeded by time.

WHY: Early in the season it can be difficult to find decent weather chances and athletes are not in peak condition for the 3200m.  Currently, there are few late season chances to run a 3200m in better weather, and even fewer exist for JV athletes. We are looking to create an opportunity for more athletes to run a competitive 3200m race on the track and take advantage of the cooler, less humid, and less windy weather available early in the morning.This is a FREE event with unlimited entries meant for male/female varsity/JV, any high school athlete. You are welcome to bring your whole distance group if you would like. The more runners, the deeper the races, and the faster everyone runs. This could be used as a culminating race for your JV athletes or a pre-regional tune-up for your varsity athletes. Coaches, please be sure to input accurate seed times for your athletes when entering the meet.

Races would be limited in size and more heats will be created based on entries and times.  Male and Female athletes will be mixed and seeded by time only.

ENTRY PROCESS: All Registration will be handled through the meet's Milesplit page. Please email Coach Eric Van Laningham at with any additional questions.It is imperative that you enter up-to-date seed times for each athlete who is competing.Thanks, and we look forward to hosting you!

AWARDS: Custom stadium blanket for the first place male and female.  Ribbons for up to 6thplace.
