100 METER DASH: The 100 Meter Dash will have a prelim if field size is greater than eight. Double check the heat sheet after Wednesday, July 29 to view the final schedule.

FIELD EVENTS:

Track events take priority over field events. Athletes who need to check in for a track event must let the field event judge know. Athletes have until last call to check into the running events, and should make arrangements to jump or throw early or late. COMMUNICATION IS THE BEST.

Participants can provide their own shot, discus and javelins, but the State Games of America will have them available on-site for those who do not bring their own.

You may use your implement if approved by weights and measures. Once approved, your implement must be part of a pool of implements that may be used by all athletes.

Four throws and four jumps. No finals.

RELAYS: Participants must pre-register for all relay events, as on-site registration will not be available. All relay members must meet gender and age requirements. The relay counts as one event.

Relay Online Registration Note: If registering for a relay event online, runners must register as an individual, not a team. The participant will be asked to list the names of the other runners on the relay team. This DOES NOT register the other runners for the event, it simply lets the sport director know who is on each relay team. Each relay member must register themselves for the event, or the participant has the option to register their relay partners by selecting “Register Another Participant” on step one of the online registration process.
