Several meet records could be in jeopardy in this year's Gala, which is the 7th annual edition of the event after taking a one year hiatus in 2012 following a storm shortened meet in 2011. We expect the meet to grow in future years and become as well as promote it as an unofficial "Meet of Champions" in Virginia as the new 6 classification state championship system to go into effect in the 2013-2014 school year should cause a greater desire for the state's best athletes and coaches to gather together to compete at season's end after the talent being spread out in the 6 state championshsip meets.

The 7th annual Elite Track Gala will be held this Saturday, June 8th at Sports Backers Stadium in Richmond. The Gala is a post-season meet for high school athletes looking to extend their outdoor season beyond their state, regional, or district championships with at least one more meet opportunity to compete and lower their times/improve their marks or a chance to compete in new or rarely run high school events such as the 400 hurdles, 1500 meter run, 5000 meter run, and 2000 meter steeplechase. The meet also serves athletes well who are competing at the New Balance Outdoor Nationals, USATF Junior Nationals, and/or summer track (AAU/USATF) with quality tune-up meet in between to stay sharp and race ready in.
