Charlottesville High School
The club's original race series, All-Comers Summer Track Meets, established in the summer of 1975, will continue its long term streak of providing an opportunity for folks of all abilities to race distances from 100 meters to 5,000 meters. Thanks to the efforts of Bette Dzamba, Rick Kwiatkowski, Scott Smith and Leah Connor, the club will offer four evening meets at the Charlottesville High School Track (June 16, June 23, and July 7) with the first race beginning at 6:30 p.m.

In keeping with club tradition there is no pre-race day registration (race day registration only!) and a very nominal entry fee ($1 for members / $2 for nonmembers).

These meets are a great way to experience racing different distances or as a means to get in a measured speed workout. Each meet will end with a "distance race" (2 miles or 5K) and will feature a bevy of shorter events ranging from 100 meters to 800 meters. There are several events for children, a parent/child relay, a sibling/sibling relay, and more.
