  • Once again, Florida State University is hosting the first major warm
    weather relays carnival in the southeastern United States. Formerly the
    Domino Pizza Relays
    which was contested eight consecutive years, this meet provides teams from
    around the country an opportunity to compete in ideal weather on the
    beautiful Mike
    Long Track. Each year this meet continues to grow offering ample
    competition for athletes at all developmental levels.


    The Florida State University (FSU) Relays provide competitive opportunities
    for men and women, junior college, university level and open athletes. Our
    relays
    committee is proud of their efforts to structure this competition in a
    manner whereas athletes in each race and field event, are matched with
    others of similar ability.
    This along with the traditional fine weather, awards, and spirit of
    competition, has made the F.S.U. Relays one of the finest of its kind
    throughout the country.


    Enclosed you will find information specific to the format and procedures of
    the F.S.U. Relays. Please be sure you and your athletes fully understand
    this material. Be
    especially careful to follow the designated registration procedures as we
    will be unable to process any entries improperly submitted. Please feel
    free to call me at
    850-644-8922 or 850-575-3844 if you have any questions.


    We look forward to hosting this event and seeing you in Tallahassee.

    LIMITED FIELD ENTRIES

    Athletes who are confirmed in events with “limited fields” should check
    with the track office on Thursday, March 19, to determine if they were
    accepted in the
    “Championship Final” or if they will be running in the Friday night
    sections. See the time schedule for the exact times.


    OPEN LANE POLICY

    It is a goal of the Relays to not have any open lanes whenever possible.
    Therefore we will attempt to fill vacancies in the following manner:

    1. In a track event where a top number have been selected and there is
    a “no show”, the clerk will add competitors to the race from a list of
    original entries
    who were not selected. A list of eligible participants for these
    events will be posted in a ranked order. They will be added to the event by
    the clerk as lanes
    become available if they have declared their intent to participate at
    the clerk’s table 15 minutes prior to the running of that event.

    2. In a track event final in which the finalists have qualified from
    trials and there is a “scratch” by any of the qualifiers, the
    non-qualifiers may be moved into the
    final starting with the first or fastest non-qualifier whichever
    applies, if they have declared their intent to participate at the clerk’s
    table 15 minutes prior to the
    running of that event.

    3. In qualifying trials of track events where heats have been seeded,
    no additions will be allowed after final confirmation has been made.

    4. No additions will be allowed in the field events after final
    confirmation.


    ADMISSION TO MEET

    Each team will receive one team pass for each member of their official
    party (athletes, coaches, S.I.D.’s etc.) which will admit them to either
    the east or west stands.

    All athletes will be admitted with their meet number and pass! The meet
    number will be their means of identification for everything (admission, awards,
    placing, etc.). When not competing, athletes and coaches will be admitted
    at any open gate except the clerk’s gate. Such entrances are located on the
    south,
    northwest and northeast sides of the facility. When participating, however,
    athletes will only be admitted on the south end of the track directly
    behind the track
    scoreboard. Neither coaches or athletes who have not been called by the
    clerk to report will be allowed to enter via the clerk’s gate.


    COACHES AND NON-COMPETING ATHLETES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE INFIELD OF
    THE TRACK!


    TRAINERS

    All trainers will receive a trainers pass which will admit them at any
    gate. The designated trainer will be at the Northeast corner of the track.
    Please note that this is
    a change from other years.

    DIVISIONS

    Standards have been established for Division I and Division II level
    competition based on personal and best performance of the athlete entered.
    For a specific
    breakdown on the divisional set-up, see the last page enclosed. Those
    events which do not specify division will be open to all individuals or
    teams eligible for that
    event (No clubs in any relays unless so specified as Invitational).


    FACILITY

    The Mike Long track surface is Rekortan as are the long jump, triple jump,
    pole vault runways, high jump (80′ approach) and javelin (110″ runway). NO
    spikes
    longer than 3/8″ may be used! The shot put, discus, and hammer circles are
    brushed concrete.

    Marking take off points on approach areas and exchange zones: All take off
    points must be marked with TAPE ONLY. Any athlete who if found marking his
    or her
    approach area or exchange zone with chalk, paint or any other substance
    other than tape will immediately be disqualified from that competition by a
    meet official.

    Coaches are held responsible for informing their athletes and disqualified
    athletes will be referred back to their coaches for explanation as to why
    they were not
    informed of the regulation.

    Many of you have attended the F.S.U. Relays in the past and realize that

    kept. Each coach is expected to provide his/her athletes with their
    appropriate times. Pictures will be taken in the event of NCAA qualifying
    performances. Please note that we will arrange athletes in advance, but
    that everyone should be prepared for consolidation of heats in case of
    “no-shows”!




    ** If you have athletes in the CHAMPIONSHIP Steeplechase, 5,000m Run or the
    10,000m Run on Friday night, the starting times may vary slightly
    from the time schedule if a very large number of unseeded heats are run.




    Please provide this information to your athletes to help them warm up
    properly. WE WILL NOT START BEFORE TIMES LISTED ON THE TIME
    SCHEDULE FOR THE STEEPLECHASE, 5000M OR THE 10,000M !
