Manual’s track is one city block from Cardinal Park and they have volunteered to include non-scoring, no award events for athletes who did not qualify for the invitational portion of the meet. All races at Manual will be on a fixed time schedule so athletes and coaches at UofL can plan accordingly. The events are 3200m, 400m, and 800m. The schedule will be communicated before the meet. These events, along with Friday’s open events will provide an opportunity for non-qualifiers, relay legs, etc. to be a part of the meet.
Track Events: All track events are timed finals.
Field Events: Shot put, discus, long jump, and triple jump will be contested with 3 jumps/throws, with the top 9 athletes advancing to finals. During the preliminary round, all marks will be measured in the first round. During the second and third rounds only marks that exceed the entry standard will be measured. All marks will be measured in the final.
For the High Jump and Pole Vault the starting height will begin at the entry standard.
