A Message From Elite Xpress Track & Field
June 15, 2020
Elite Xpress Track & Field would like to convey our solidarity with, and support for, the movements seen across the nation and around the world protesting social injustices. This organization and the entities which preceded it have always made it a point of emphasis to highlight the value and worth of every competing athlete, coach, official, and supporting family member. The very nature of the sport of track and field is a meritocracy, where no placing or result is predetermined, but depends on the actions of those involved as measured to the closest margins of fairness. This concept is universal, and comprises the core of Elite Xpress’ mission and pledge to the Johnston County community and beyond. All lives have value, including Black lives, which do matter.
