Some states are still waiting for final entries to send in approval but right now we have received approvals from: VA, NY, DE, FL, MD, PA, NJ, KY, (NC will be approved when state association checks updated list).


Meet management is also excited to announce this meet being a NSAF Select Meet. For more information about the NSAF and entry into the National Championship, see their website here!

More In-depth Track Information


This new facility will be the best in Virginia and one of the best in the entire nation. It will feature a 200m hydraulically banking track. This means it will move up and down in terms of its incline based on the event happening. The Two Mile runs will be nearer a flat track while the 300m dash will have the bank all the way up.

The facility will have double horizontal straights, area for two high jump competitions, two pole vault competitions, eight sprint/hurdle lanes on the infield of the oval and a 50ft by 100m team area on the second floor. That area will be an overlook stretching nearly the entire length of the facility.

On the other side of that overlook will be a 100m long rubberized warmup track.

Invitational Events
These events include everything except the 4x400 and 4x800 which will be normal timed finals that are run fast to slow.

Invitational events will be the top 10-15 or top flight of athletes entered into each event. These events will be run off at the exact time listed on the time schedule. In events where there are multiple sections the event will run slow to fast and in distance races have the top seed on the far outside.

In the 4x200 and 300 we will be running lanes 3-6. Seeding for lanes will be done by meet management and based on a combination of current season bests and realistic predictions of what someone could run if they do not have a time. Preference of lanes for lane races on the oval are 4-5-6-3-2-1.
