This race was designed to welcome you into the world of cross country running so that as you run or walk on race day you can be connected with the very athletes your registration is supporting. We plead with Mother Nature to be kind to us, but there are times when parts of the course are muddy or slick. Please use appropriate caution on race day to ensure your safety and the safety of others. To this affect, there may be changes to the race course due to weather which is out of our control. Any and all course changes are done with your safety in mind. For this same reason, strollers and dogs are not permitted on the race course. The first 300m of the course is on road, the remainder of the course is on grass, therefore racing spikes with the spikes in are not encouraged.
- Please wear your bib and its corresponding timing chip on your Outer most layer of clothing to ensure it registers properly.
- When on the race course, please stay to the Right and allow faster runners to pass on the left.
Important Race Information:
- All race bibs are non-transferrable. Transferring bibs negatively affects race results across genders and age groups and has the potential to strip a deserving athlete of an award. Please be mindful of this.
