Allowable Spike Types: 1/4\" Pyramid
As is true at almost all all-weather tracks now, the allowable length for spikes on the track surface has been changed from 1/8" to 1/4". The style of spike preferred is pyramid. This year we will allow needles spikes as well. Christmas tree, corkscrew, or other types of spikes NOT pyramid or needle OR use of spikes protruding beyond the base plate over 1/4" will result in immediate disqualification from an event! Random spike checks will occur throughout the meet. Note that longer spikes are permitted on the grass javelin runway.

2009 Updated Championships Time Schedule/Order of Events Posted
There were no changes in event order, just an update of 5 to 10 minutes in some events to more accurately reflect 2009 entries. The time schedule from 2008 did not reflect the 2 section finals in the 100m, 200m, and 110m High Hurdles for the boys. Also in the 2008 order of events the number of heats was not updated to reflect the actual entries. The 2009 version attempts to more accurately reflect the reality of the number of heats and therefore the time schedule. Changes are highlighted in yellow for your convenience.
