There is no regular track meet this weekend. We are attending The Medford Mile, which is hosted by the Medford Track Club. This is a FREE, fun, all-ages, family event. However, if you plan to participate you must sign up in advance by this Friday night (link below). Also, please send me a quick reply here to let me know if you are attending. The only running event is the mile, but there will also be long jump, high jump, shot put, discus and javelin. See below for specific information on eligible ages for each event.
***At this event, parents must supervise their own children and get them to any events they are doing. It is possible to do more than one event, but parents will be responsible for getting their own kids wherever they need to be. The mile will have assigned, rolling heats based on age for kids, and then based on estimated time for adults. High jumpers will need to report to that event at 6:30pm, whereas the other field events will have open pits. We will not be able to provide practice time before events. Your child should be confident in their ability to do an event they sign up for.
Here is the info from the event director, and it is also included on the registration form linked below. Remember, YOU MUST REGISTER BY THIS SATURDAY NIGHT.
