Midsummer Nights Distance Open Set For July 7th in Marion

The first annual Midsummer Night's Distance Classic is set to take place July 7th, at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana. Marion is just an hour south of Fort Wayne and an hour and a half north of Indianapolis.

Indiana Wesleyan University will play host for the first outdoor meet of 2020 in the state of Indiana for high school track and field. The meet will start at 7:30pm contesting just three events, 1600, 800 and 3200. MileSplit will be on-site at this event for complete coverage.

The meet will be limited in entries to keep a small and safe environment for all in attendance. The top entries will be accepted in each event using verified marks only. Not everyone who registers will get to race, unfortunately. For that reason, payment will be taken at time of registration but if you are not accepted into the race, you will be issued a full refund. A finalized list will be published on in.milesplit.com no later than the morning of July 5th.
