CYUP Misfits Invitational 2022

Chicago, IL

Meet Information



In its first year, CYUP Misfits produced 2 US# 1 performances and 14 IL #1 performances. In the second year, the meet looks to surpass those previous achievements. Most athletes will run standard events such as the 200m, 400m and 800m at almost every meet they attend during the season.

While CYUP Misfits offers mostly standard events, the meet aims to give athletes a unique opportunity to compete in some "off" events namely the 300m, 600m, 1000m. Many athletes had personal bests at this career and gained scholarships opportunities. 

We look to take this meet to the next level in year two! Come and compete at Gately Track & Field Center to get a new personal best! This year we will be introducing the 4x200m and 4x400m Relay.
