Elite Night Invitational Session
Meet Entry Information for the
APU Meet of Champions Distance Classic– March 23, 2024
There are two Sessions each year in the APU Meet Of Champions Distance Classic: the Open Day Session and the Elite Night Session. We are sorry to say that our “DAY” session is completely full—we will not be accepting any additional schools into the Day session; however, your school’s top athletes may qualify to be placed in the Elite Night Session of the meet based on their qualifying times.
We will be awarding large custom designed MOC medals for all evening races.
The evening invitational 800, 1600 and 3200s will be run from 6:45 PM to 9:55 PM and will feature the top two heats in all three divisions in the 800, 1600 and 3200. This night “Invitational & Rated” section of the meet will be open to all individuals who qualify.
In that night section of the meet, we will run the full mile distance in the varsity races, but we will also have a finish camera at the 1600 meter mark to record official 1600 meter times.
These are the automatic qualifying marks that will guarantee your athlete is placed in the nighttime Invitational section of the meet. If you have additional information that you feel may be helpful in seeding, please feel free to email me at any time
( firstname.lastname@example.org ) .
