Important and helpful information regarding track events.

  •  In all running events the women will run first.  The oldest athletes will run first, making the way through age groups, the oldest women athletes down to the youngest women's athletes. The men’s groups, oldest to youngest, will follow. 
  • Those of you participating in the second or third running events of the day need not show up right at 8:00 a.m. It is difficult to predict what exact time events that “follow” will start but please be aware that there will be a wait. 
  • There is a  4x 100M Relay for fun where individuals will check-in after the 100m run to form teams.  You do not need to pre-register.  Announcements will be made at the completion of the 100m run.
  • Starting blocks will be available at the track.
  • The Power Walk is a 1500M competitive walk.  Please note that revised rules are in place for the power walk.  Check the rulebook here.  Medals will be awarded. 
  • Events are timed finals.



High jump, long jump, triple jump, pole vault


Softball Throw

Note: Pole vault - Franklin High School has secured a new pole vault mat so the event is on for 2023.

Important and helpful information regarding field events.

  • The field event schedule will be similar to the rotation used in past years.  
  • In addition, to stay on schedule, a maximum of FOUR (4) throws in the discus, shot put, and javelin will be allowed. 
  • A schedule by age group will be posted a week out. 
  • For field events, athletes will participate in the order and age listed on the computer participant sheets. Athletes may NOT take turns out of order.   We realize that many of you are trying to participate in multiple events but it is not fair for the other athletes who have been waiting for a long time for you to “break-in”.
  •  Athletes MUST provide their own pole for the pole vault.



Sports Chairs:  Bob Brunton, Reginald Caldwell, Edwin Hagans, Mike Ham, Amy Ham, Gary Hathcock, Jim Kaiser, Anvil Nelson, Mike Walker
