Schedule for Each Session

Gates open at 5:30 PM. 

Check-in, on-site registration and sign-up for event heats opens at 6:00 PM.

The first event will start at 6:30 PM. Events will be held in the order listed. The time between events will be determined by the number of participants.

Participants for each event need to be in the starting area when "first call" is announced in order to receive heat assignments. 

Following each night’s final event, we encourage everyone to participate in a group cool-down!  Depending on the time available, we will have a Predict Your Time (PYT) Mile - no watches are allowed.
