4 x 100m Relay vs. NE Distance Athlete - This is a relay race consisting of four people who will each run 100m (1/4 around the track). Teams of four will see if they can take down a single NE Distance athlete running an entire 400m.
Starting at 6:00 PM
TurboJav - The TurboJav teaches the basic fundamentals and mechanics associated with any throwing Event. The TurboJav was originally designed to teach beginner javelin throwers the same throwing fundamentals in a safe and fun environment.
Long Jump - The long jump combines speed, strength, and agility in an attempt to leap as far as possible from a take-off point.
Prior to competition, all athletes must sign the "Indemnification Release" form. This signed form must be printed out and brought to the first meet in which the athlete attends. Completion of this form is required for participation.
Participants are asked to pre-register whenever possible. Although pre-registration is NOT required, it is helpful as it gives us an idea of the number of participants to expect.
Day of registration will begin at 5:00 PM and will run until the meet begins at 6:00 PM.
The NE Distance Summer Track Series is run solely by volunteers. We will need approximately 25 people to assist with the following:
Check-in/Registration | Announcer | Concession Stand | T-Shirt Sales | Ribbon Distribution | Starting Line Help | Finish Line Help | Field Event Helpers | Age-Group Leaders | Clean-up Crew
