CYUP Misfits Invite Presented by HOKA 2023

Chicago, IL

Meet Information


Due to the meet hitting capacity in certain events we have created a waiting list below. Once registration closes and events open up. Athletes & Coaches will be notified on a first come, first serve basis. 

In two years, CYUP Misfits has produced a National Record, 3 US# 1 performances and 30 IL #1 performances. In the second year, the meet looks to surpass those previous achievements.

While CYUP Misfits offers mostly standard events, the meet aims to give athletes a unique opportunity to compete in "off" events such as, the 300m, 600m, 1000m. This is an awesome chance for athletes to start their season by not running their main eventsMany athletes had personal bests at this career and gained scholarships opportunities. 

Come and compete at Worrill Center to get a new personal best!
