Please Note: Meridian Mile may be run in heats (sections) of 50 to 80 people if necessary. The heats will be broken down by gender first and then by entry time with the faster heats competing first. What does this mean? Basically, females will race females and males will race males. Similar entry times will be in the same heats with the same gender. The exact start times of each heat will depend on the amount of people entered in the race and their "predicted" finish time within the registration process.
