PERFORMANCE LIST/ FIELD EVENT FLIGHTS- this is the performance list for your meet. If you would like to down seed any running event, or scratch one, please see the timer at the finish line before the start of the meet on the day of. No team will be allowed to improve on its seed time.
FIELD EVENT FLIGHTS- at this time, we are not allowing teams to switch field event flights. These include built in warm up time, and should allow for ample time to check out for a running event within the hour long flight. We took great care to avoid multiple athletes overlapping field event times, but we can not guarantee every need will be satisfied. Flights will start on time, never early. Athletes will be allowed to jump out of order, BUT NOT IN A DIFFERENT FLIGHT.
