Athletes will not register for a meet and represent their high school team unless a meet is sanctioned by the appropriate goeverning body.

The event schedule for each meet may vary depending upon the specific events being held. A typical event order is below and subject to change based upon meet entries and the events on the schedule. For Longer Distance Runners, some track meets will feature the 1 Mile Run , 1500 M Run or 1600 M Run as well as the 2 Mile Run, 3200 Meter Run or 3,000 Meter Run. Longer races and some relays will take place on Friday nights. Events 1 mile or shorter willl be typically held on Saturdays and Sundays.

We will do our best to appropriately separate all races and events to accommodate athletes competing in or running multiple events. Each athlete's exact start time will be posted under the Event Day tab a few days prior to the events date.




When does each participant or relay team show up to check in for their event or the meet?


We suggest each individual athlete or registered relay teams arrive at least two hours before the scheduled start time of the first event in which the athlete or relay team is scheuduled to compete. This will give each athlete or team plenty of time to park or drop off participants, checkin for the meet, drop your stuff or set up team camp, take a potty break, and get warmed up.
Each individual or team must be present and ready to check in with the starter or field event official by last call and no later than 15 minutes prior to their scheduled event start time!




What is the RunRite Indoor Track and Field Center?


The RunRite Indoor Track and Field Center was created to fill the void between the end of high school cross country and the outdoor track and field season. This center will provide athletes and team with an opportunity to catch up to athletes around the country who already have an indoor season or benefit from year round training programs. The facility also gives Arizona's athletes a chance to continue competing after their high school outdoor season with indoor competitions held each week throughout the hot summer months in the desert.




I am a high school coach may I enter and coach my team?


Our indoor meets are for individual or cub athletes. Our meets (unless indicated) are not recognized as events sponsored by the AIA, USA Track and Field, or other organizations. If you are the coach of an athlete or caoch of a team of athletes, please contact us so we can discuss a coaching pass to allow you in to coach your athletes during meets. Your athletes will enter as individuals and may be assigned a code unique to your team in order to identify their affiliate with you. If you are a high school coach, we invite you and your athletes to participate as a club team registered with our league or affiliated with USA Track and Field or AAU track.




How many athletes will compete in each meet or season?


The number or registration spots will vary by meet or season. The number of particpants will range from 60 openings in some events up to 148 in others per age group. In some cases, due to being combined with collegiate or professional meets, we reserve the right to reduce the number of participant openings available in some events based upon registration levels. Example: If we open 60 spots in the 1500 meters and only 30 athlete register, we may increase the number in spots for other events. A limited number of registrations will be available in each event and age group or division. Athletes will be entered on a first come, first entered based. We suggest you make your commitment early. You may be added to a wait list if an event is full.
