Entry Deadline: All entries close on Monday, September 10, 2012. This will allow us to assign numbers to each runner, post results after each race and send the result out. Teams MUST register on athletic.net. This is new but very important.
Late Entries (very limited): Any late entries must have a team roster on athletic.net by Wednesday, September 12th. Late entry fee: add $50.

There are plenty of shaded picnic and barbeque areas, lavatories, phones and water, but no dressing rooms. Snacks and T-Shirts will be available. We look forward to seeing your team on Saturday, September 15th.
