March 22, 2014

The 23rd annual adidas Meet Of Champions Distance Classic sponsored by adidas and hosted by Azusa Pacific University and Arroyo High School will be held on Saturday, March 22, 2014, at Azusa Pacific University.

There are two sessions each year in the adidas Meet Of Champions Distance Classic: the Open Day Session and the Elite Night Session.The Open Day Session is for full teams and runners of all ability levels; however, the Open Day session for 2014 MOC is already full to capacity. There will be no more individuals or teams added to the Day Session on the meet.

The Elite Night Session is still open to any athletes from any schools that have run fast enough during the 2014 track season to qualify. Please do not submit what you think your athletes will runonly what they have run. We will verify all marks before accepting.

Also, the winner of the Meet of Champions Dream Mile in the boys varsity and girls will qualify for the adidas Dream Mile, which will be held during the adidas Grand Prix meet in New York in June, 2014. All qualifiers will have all their expenses, including air and hotel costs, covered by adidas. The Dream Mile brings the top male and female high school runners in the country together in one race in the Grand Prix meet, which will also feature virtually every top American track athlete as well as several others from around the world.

The Elite Night Session 800, Mile/1600 and 3200s will be run from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM. In that Elite Night Session of the meet, we will run the full mile distance, but we will also have a finish camera at the 1600 meter mark to record official 1600 meter times. These are the automatic qualifying marks that will guarantee your athlete is placed in the Elite Night Session of the meet. You may also enter athletes who have not yet met these qualifying marks--after all entries are received, the top 18-24 athletes entered by time will be added to the invitational and rated sections of the Elite Night Session meet to complete the fields.
