Cross Country Classic
Saturday, October 16, 2010 at Fernhill Park
Hosted by Concordia University
We are set for year six of the Concordia XC classic on Saturday, October 16 at Fernhill Park in Portland. We are continuing with a college/open division, but have moved those races to 8K for men and 5K for women and will run early in the day beginning at 10:00am. We will retain the high school format with elite and invitational high school divisions as well as the open JV and JV team scored divisions. There will be great competition in all divisions and fun for all!
All high school entries will be done through athletic.net ( http://www.athletic.net). The fees for high school teams are $250 for combined boys and girls teams (includes unlimited JV entries as well). Single gender teams are $150. Individuals are $25. Your team will be given 14 shirts (7 for each varsity team) with your entry fee as well as great team and individual awards. I will be flagging the course early Saturday morning, but markings and maps will be done the day before if you want to preview the course on Friday with your team.
All college/open entries will be done on Direct Athletics ( http://www.directathletics.com ). Fees will be $250 for combined men’s and women’s teams. $150 if only one gender is entered. Individuals are $25.
We look forward to seeing you and your teams!
