Important Invitational Information

By Laronica Potts, 03/11/22, 3:45PM PST


Know where to check-in, sit, send your runners, etc. Please read!

The 10 East Invitational is a different kind of meet - it's a celebration of our teams and runners, an occasion to host other SoCal teams on our home track, and the season's first opportunity for official race times using the AccuTrack system. Later in the season our teams will visit other area invitationals where we will be their guests! 

Organizing these types of events takes a tremendous amount of time and coordination with the help of many parents and volunteers. You can help by staying aware of the following: 

  • Late registrations, changes, or add-ons can NOT be accepted now - there are no exceptions. Next and same day registrations are simply not possible. There are a number of steps that take place after the registration and that time has now closed. Thank you for your understanding. 
  • All bibs (athlete number) must be picked up at the start of the meet between 7-8:30 am. If you would like to leave and return for later events after receiving your bib, you are welcome to do so.
  • Please read this event information carefully. Note a small change to the order of events - relays will now take place at the start of the meet before the 1500.  
  • Please carefully review the attached map - note that 10 East check-in is at the next gate down from our usual entrance. Parents of 8 and unders, you will meet your runners at the Exit Gate 3 after their event. All runners need to use the outer sidewalk when returning from the exit gate to their seats. 
  • As you listen for the event calls, remember that your child's age group will be with the age they are turning (or turned) this year - even if that is December 2022. For example, a child born in November 2011 will run with the 11 year olds, even if they won't turn 11 until November. This is a national standard for track and field events.
  • Plan for a fun, and long day at the track. With so many eager runners, each event will take some time, even with our best organization efforts in place! The last events will likely run until dark. Tips were sent via Remind earlier this week and can be found under "Files."
  • Bring cash! Bibs are $10, parking is $5, and there will be concessions, raffle tickets, and great prize baskets to bid on! 

Thank you Parents! We know this is a lot so early in the season and we appreciate your participation and cooperation. With everyone's help, tomorrow should be a great event!
