Indoor open meets

Updated: Nov 22

Contributor: The Nerd


Nebraska doesn't offer an indoor track season, but racing opportunities have dramatically increased this year. If you're aware of other races, shoot us an e-mail at jayslagle@hotmail.com and we'll add it.



Sunday, December 12: Concordia University, Seward, NE (1st of 3 meets). 200-meter track, limited entries, 6 field events and 6 running events up to 1600 meters. Two-hour meet from 3:00 to 5:00.

Saturday, January 8: Pittsburg State high school meet, Pittsburg, KS. 300-meter track. The registration link was not active as of 11/20/21 but the 2018 schedule reflected races from 60 meters to 3000 as well as four field events (no weights). A 300-mile trip from Omaha or Lincoln so likely not a great option for most Nebraskans.

Saturday, January 8: HyVee Arena, Kansas City (1st of 2 meets) for youth and high school athletes. 350-meter track, no field events. The registration and information link was not active as of 11/20/21. The 2021 schedule for of the HyVee events shows races from 60 meters to 3000, with multiple 800 and mile races at the 15/16 and 17/18 level. The 17/18 800/mile winning times were 2:15/5:08 (girls) and 2:02/4:22 (boys) so may be worth the trip for top-level racers.

Sunday, January 23: Northwest Missouri State, Maryville, MO (1st of 4 meets), 115 miles from Omaha. 300-meter track. Youth and high school meet, and presumably post-high school. Their only 2021 meet drew competition from as far as Colorado and Arkansas, although there may be less competition with more events on the schedule.

Sunday, February 13: Washburn University, Topeka, KS (championship meet), 165 miles from Omaha and Lincoln. High school athletes only. 200-meter banked track.

Running events from 60 meters to 2-mile as well as six field events.

Sunday, February 13: Concordia University, Seward, NE (Championship meet). 200-meter track, limited entries, 6 field events and 6 running events up to 1600 meters. There are no additional performance or prior meet requirements to register for this meet, but this 4th and final meet will include medals for the top performers based on results at all four meets on 12/12, 1/23, 2/6 and 2/13. Few athletes compete in all four meets and many will only compete in one. We attended several Concordia open meets in 2019 and we were really impressed by them. Keep checking the website for more details.
