First call for FLRC’s June 27 track meet at Ithaca High School at 6 PM

It’s time for twilight on the track, and FLRC is kicking off the first of two summer meets on June 27 at Ithaca High School at 6 PM. (The second is our new Trackapalooza invitational, with a full slate of events on July 22.) This is a family-friendly event and all ages (seriously!) and abilities (really!) are welcome. When you’re not running, you can enjoy watching some of the area’s best runners compete against one another.

  • Events: The June events will be the 100m, 1600m, 200m, 400m, in that order, plus the long jump, shot put, and discus throughout. We’ll also have a 4x200m relay that you’ll sign up for at the meet. Register today—there is no day-of-race registration!
  • Volunteer: If you’re not running or only want to do one event, please join our highly amiable volunteer crew! We could use a few more people, particularly timers for lane-based races (and we’ll love you for more than your thumb). Volunteers also get post-meet subs and a brightly colored T-shirt. To volunteer, please sign up in Helper Helper (or email me).
  • New to track? If you’ve never run a track meet before, or never run one of ours, check out our First-Timer’s FAQ for Track Meets. If you have additional questions, just ask!
  • MileSplit registration: All registration takes place in MileSplit, which is used by all the schools in the area. It can be confusing the first time through, so if you have trouble, consult our quick-and-dirty documentation. Some quick tips:
    • Look for the green Register Online Now button in the upper-right corner.
    • Individuals should read/watch How do I enter an individual in a meet?
    • Club coaches should read/watch How do I enter my team into a meet?
    • All individuals register as Unattached; teams are only for clubs attending as a group.
    • Families should register as individuals; please do not create a team for your family.
    • Choose a division based on what you’ll be paying: Non-FLRC Member if you aren’t a club member, FLRC Member if you are, and Financial Aid if a fee would prevent you from participating. The gender of the division doesn’t matter because we combine everything.
    • When entering seed (estimated finish) times, leave Meet Name blank. It’s not used.
    • You can always log in again to change your seed times or events.

If you have problems, ask MileSplit support at and cc me at so I can see where you’re getting stuck.

Looking forward to seeing lots of people at the Ithaca High School track on Tuesday, June 27!
