Rules and Sanction


USATF rules will apply. Protests must be filed in writing within 30 minutes of the results being announced and accompanied by a $50 cash deposit, refundable only if the protest is upheld. Athletes may wear a singlet of their choosing as long as it does not conflict with their state association's rules. USATF CARDS, VALID IN YEAR 2018, ARE REQUIRED. YOU MAY PURCHASE THEM AT YOUR LOCAL USATF OFFICE, AT MEET REGISTRATION OR VIA


This is an open meet, sanctioned by USATF and governed by USATF rules. It is NOT sanctioned by any high school federation as it is contested after the official high school outdoor season in most or all states.

Some of the differences between USATF and National Federation of High School rules are:

  1. The start referee can hear the protest right then and there.
  2. The start referee is allowed to allow them to run under protest, but is not obliged to.
  3. The start referee can decide to reject the protest and not allow the athlete to run..

This is not an all-inclusive list. Athletes and coaches may familiarize themselves with USATF rules here: Latest USATF Competition Rules Book.
