We are edging nearer to the race!
Entry fees are $50 per gender. We will take checks on site. Cash will be accepted, but change cannot be guaranteed.
The time schedule is on the meet homepage here on athletic.net.
Many of you have emailed us with questions regarding the length of the races. What is listed on this page is correct: Varsity boys will run 5000 meters, while every other race will be 3000 meters (Varsity girls included).
Post-event, we will be hosting open 3x500 meter relays for any coach or athlete who wants to test their footspeed on a custom grass track.
Awards will follow, with the top ten finishers in each varsity race receving shirts. Winning varsity teams will also receive commemorative shirts. There is no limit on the number of runners who may run in the varisty race, but winning teams will be limited to ten shirts.
All entries will take place here on athletic.net. We will be compiling results using this site's excel meet manager, so we plan on having final results very shortly after the conclusion of the final race.
