* Trials/Semi Finals will only be run in age divisions with sufficient entries to warrant trials. Any age division that does not require trials will
automatically run in the finals.

The Final Start List is posted at GG9 track and field website.

When you sign up for a relay event, you will be asked for a team code. This team code can be created by anyone who is registering for track and field. If you already have a relay team set up, one of the relay members should create a team code online and provide it to the rest of the team.
