Welcome to the return of the Golden South Classic in a much different format under the new organization and direction of new editor Brandon Miles as the meet director. Instead of the meet being simply a one-off single day/weekend event, we are making it a three-leg meet series over consecutive weekends at different locations in Florida for the month of May.

Hopefully, this new format will give more athletes opportunities and choices to compete in the post-season at a high-caliber event for whichever date, location works for them or potentially all do as a mini-post season.
