Medals will be rewarded to the top three finishers in each Men’s and Women’s age group (including the Open divisions).
Track event awards will be presented following each heat to top 3 finishers. Age-group heats may be combined on the track, but will be awarded separately. Field event awards will be presented following completion of flights or open pits.
- All Weather 400 meter track surface. All shoes will be checked. Any 1/4″ spikes or flats permitted.
- Concrete throwing rings.
- Long and Triple Jump will have an open pit in all age group divisions.
- Discus – the first 70 feet or so of the sector used to be hardrock but is now covered with sand. This hasn’t hurt the discs before, but participants who remember the old surface have already complained in advance.
- Pole vaulters must bring their own poles. Throwers must bring their own implements.
Implements may be checked-in and weighed throughout the day.
The Pride Track & Field Meet will be held according to formal USATF and USATF Masters regulations. Hurdle heights and race distances, as well as all other age-specific implement requirements can be found on the Masters Track and Field Site.
This event will also comply with the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA). See the USATF website for more info.
Fully electronic timing will be used. Results will be posted throughout the meet, and online following the conclusion of the meet.
