Virtual Track Meet Info
Welcome to Mercy’s Virtual Track Meet! With the cancellation of all team sports, the Mercy CYO Track & Field team decided to bring back some competition in our lives by sponsoring a Virtual Track Meet beginning this Saturday, May 16th and run through Saturday, May 30th. All proceeds will go towards Mercy’s CYO Athletic programs.
How will it work?
Events: Anyone can enter the following events: 400 meters (1 lap around the track), 800 meters (2 laps around the track) and/or 1600 meters (4 laps around the track).
Entry Fee: Each event will cost $10.00 per entry.
Timing: Individuals will time their own races and enter the results online (link will be provided). If possible, you can film your event and text to Laura Heilman at 302-438-5145 for official review. We are going by the honor code.
Tracks: Go to a local track or treadmill and complete and time your event. Some suggestions on tracks: Winston Churchill HS, Walter Johnson HS, Tilden Middle School, Gaithersburg HS, Montgomery Community College. **Please practice social distancing when you complete your event**
Awards: The top two finishers in each event per age group will receive medals. Male/Female (6 & under, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 and above). The cut off for age groups is September 1st. If you want to complete all the events, you can complete them on different days since the events run for an entire week.
Deadline: All results must be in by Saturday May 30th, 11:59pm
If we have a strong turnout Mercy will hold a second virtual track meet four weeks later. Laura Heilman (Mercy CYO Track & Cross Country Coach) will provide a free four-week training program for beginners, intermediate and experience runners for the 400, 800, 1600 events. SET A GOAL AND SEE THE IMPROVEMENT IN JUST FOUR WEEKS!
