SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA -- Thursday’s schedule for the USATF Outdoor & Junior Outdoor Championships at Hornet Stadium has been adjusted due to high temperatures.

 

The men’s decathlon gets underway Thursday with the 100 meters at 11:45 a.m., an hour earlier than previously scheduled. Similarly, all Thursday events originally scheduled to start before 3:45 p.m. have been moved up an hour, including the men’s hammer throw final, which now starts at 1:45 p.m.

 

All Thursday events originally scheduled to start at 4 p.m. or later have been moved back an hour. The second half of Thursday’s program starts with the men’s javelin final at 5 p.m. and concludes with the men’s 10,000 meters at 10:09 p.m.

 

Other Thursday finals are the women’s triple jump (6:20 p.m.), women’s discus throw (6:50 p.m.) and women’s 10,000 (9:27 p.m.).  

 

The schedule is unchanged on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with one exception. The women's 20-kilometer race walk starts one minute after the men's race at 6:46 a.m. on Sunday. The walks are held on a loop course outside the stadium.

 

The revised schedule is posted online at www.usatf.org/Events---Calendar/2017/USATF-Outdoor-Championships/Schedule.aspx.
