2020 Division 1 Classic

February 7-8 - Geneva, Ohio

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we reluctantly must cancel the 2020 edition of the Spire NCAA Divsion1 Classic Indoor Track and Field Meet scheduled to be held on Feb. 7th and 8th, 2020.  

SPIRES's new ownership has a great deal of deferred maintenance, repairs and new construction that must be completed prior to our Indoor Championship season beginning on Feb. 21st. And, unfortunately, the week of Feb 3rd through the 8th is the only time prior to that championship season that we can bring in all the contractors to complete this work in time.    

We apologize for this inconvenience.  SPIRE's new ownership is dedicated to providing a top quality facility for the production of top quality events. Please bear with us while we make SPIRE an even better destination.
