The EVRAA Meet as an annual sports competition has had a long history, bringing together athletes from different schools and provinces in the Eastern Visayas region. Above anything, this highly-anticipated event is a celebration of sportsmanship, teamwork, and excellence in athletics, and has been a fixture in Philippine sports for many years.

This sporting event is a unique platform for student-athletes to display their athletic prowess and compete with their peers. It is an opportunity for young athletes to showcase their talents and develop their sportsmanship, discipline, and dedication to their chosen sport. The event also promotes healthy competition among schools, helping to foster a sense of pride and camaraderie among the participants.
