Entry Rules: Due to COVID-19, this years Berkeley Invitational will have entry limits. Every school will be allowed to enter some athletes into each event (schedule is listed below). Once your school has reached the maximum allotment per event, schools may add additional athletes into the alternate section for each event (1600 meter run will still allow unlimited entries). The alternate section will be used as a descending order list to fill out the remainder of each field based on the total number of athletes permitted in each event. All alternate athletes must have a verifiable entry mark using a previous mark from any year (based on marks in the database). All events will be seeded based on time, running fast to slow (with the exception of the 4 x 400 relay). Reminder, schools may enter more than one relay team. Please see schedule of events below to confirm the entry limits.

PLEASE NOTE Entry Limits and event operations are SUBJECT TO CHANGE based on evolving COVID-19 Data and Berkeley Administrative Policy. Any changes will be quickly communicated via e-mail.
