COACHES INFORMATION
  • The race is timed via an automatic timing system.
  • We intend to start all races on time.
  • Each race will begin 10-20 minutes apart and end in two finish chutes (left for the boys and right for girls).  Every finisher will get a final time, regardless if they get caught by the next race.
  • Be sure to have your runners on the line 10 minutes prior to the start of the race for check in by the course clerk.
  • Once the course leaves the Hurricane Harbor Parking Lot area (approx 1.1 miles) there is no overlap or crossing.
  • Every school (boys and girls combined) will have no more than 2 hours between the time their first race starts and their last member finishes.  That means more time in the park!
  • Please have your athletes be careful of races in progress while walking or warming up on the course.
  • Please bring your own pins.
  • Results will be posted at this site by race evening of Sept 27.  They will also be posted at the meet site.
