Once again, the Spire Institute will be hosting the MileSplit Scholastic Showcase. This will be the 5th year for the meet that is Webcast Nationally by MileSplit and has quickly grown into not only a showcase of some of Ohio's best talent, but also the Midwest's, as well as drawing some of the nations elite athletes from all over the country and Canada. The meet will be held this year on Sunday, February 12th with the number of entrants increasing form 24 to 32 per event and will include All Events with the 4x800m Relay as the last event of the day.

The Top 32 Times and Marks per event will be entered and on the Final Acceptance List. There will be no on-site registrations and the Acceptance Lists will be posted on Ohio MileSplit and other appropriate MileSplit State Web pages.
