The schedule of events below is an approximate time based upon participation registered numbers. A FINAL schedule and heat sheet will be posted at CornhuskerStateGames.com and emailed to participants the week of competition by Wednesday July 15th and not before. Please check the Website before calling the Sport Director.
NOTE: The meet can run up to 15 minutes ahead of schedule, so please plan to be there at least an HOUR before your race.
The Cornhusker State Games Track & Field Meet will continue to be a one-day format. Past CSG meets ran from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The meet is usually hot, and recruiting volunteers for three sessions is very difficult. Those interested in walking in the 2020 Games are encouraged to register for any of three walking events – CSG Walk (Outdoor Lincoln, July 25); Mallwalk (Indoor Lincoln, July 19); WalkOmaha (Outdoor Omaha, July 26) – at CornhuskerStateGames.com.
The updated time format for 2020 has two sessions: Session 1 from approximately 7:30 a.m. to Noon, and Session 2 from approximately Noon to 5:15 p.m. Event times and details below.
MAX EVENTS: A maximum of three (3) events per participant in the following age groups: 3-4 Years, 5-6 Years, 7-8 Years, 9-10 Years and 11-12 Years. A maximum of four (4) events per participant in the following age groups: 13-14 Years, 15-16 Years and 17-18 Years. Participants who register for more than the maximum allowed will be subject to disqualification in the event(s) that takes them over the maximum.
100 METER DASH: The 100 Meter Dash will be a final only for all youth and master divisions. Fully automatic timing will be used, so there is no need for a preliminary. However, meet directors would like to get the best runners in the fastest section. Please enter a legitimate 100 Meter seed time during registration.
Track events take priority over field events. Athletes who need to check in for a track event must let the field event judge know. Athletes have until last call to check into the running events, and should make arrangements to jump early or late. COMMUNICATION IS THE BEST.
Three jumps. No finals.
CHECK IN PROCESS
BIB NUMBERS – Bib Numbers are no longer used in the event. When you arrive go directly to your field event site if that is first or proceed to Hip Number tent to pick up a hip number for your first racing event. Please allow 45 minutes to an hour to warm-up and get your hip number. The Hip number tent will be in the Southeast corner of the track. No registration at the meet is required and no packet pickup will be allowed at the meet.
