What should I bring to a track meet?

Track Meet Day: What to Pack?

All track and field athletes need to take responsibility for their personal equipment needs and bring gear including spikes, gloves, their specific shot put, discus, or javelin. But a few other things are helpful for athletes in any events to have in their bags:
-Band-aids, both small and large, for mid-meet blisters on fingers, toes, or heels
-Toilet paper/Kleenex
-Water bottle/sports beverage of choice
-Energy snack of choice (bars, gels, crackers, etc.)
- Pain reliever (Advil, Tylenol, etc.)
-Warm-up jacket; even on a warm day, sprinters, jumpers, and hurdlers in particular need to stay warm between events

I would also add a hat of some sort or an umbrella since there sometimes are no tents on the field. Also any personal medications (ie inhalers, epipens, insulin) and sunscreen

I agree 100%. But when you drink your sports drink make sure you do it after because you will feel really bad after the meet
