The Varsity races will be timed by FasTrak. For the JV race, the big clock will be running, but we won’t have official times. Also, to keep things moving and avoid darkness, runners in the Varsity races will be athletes that can complete a 5K in under 25 minutes (boys) or 30 minutes (girls). We plan to stop the clock at that point to prepare for the next race.
Race maps are attached. Buses and cars should unload at the main parking lot by the stadium, NOT at the access road behind the visitors’ bleachers. We’ll have the stadium restrooms open, and teams can set up at the top of the stadium. No one will be allowed on the field or visitors’ bleachers other than coaches and runners (during their race). NO METAL SPIKES are allowed in this race – there’s some new sod on the course in the stadium, and besides, a considerable amount of the course is on loose gravel or pavement.
Please – NO PACING is allowed by anyone at any time. This would include coaches, parents and teammates running in another race.
This is a a challenging course with a steep hill right off the bat that’s repeated halfway through. It’s also difficult for coaches in that it’s hard to get around to the 1 mile and 2 mile marks. Finally, we’ll have water at the finish line as well as athletic trainers on site.
