Please submit your roster by Monday September 24th.  Rosters need to be entered using athletic.net (for entry instructions, click on link).
*It doesn't matter at all if you enter an athlete in a certain division and want to change them later. We just need the names to enter them in the system. You choose who runs what race, and the finishers will be entered into the results of that race afterwards.

New this year, this race is for middle school and elementary school teams and unattached runners.  The race distance will be 1.5 miles, and will follow the same course but finish after completing the first loop of the driving range.  There is no registration fee for middle school and elementary school teams.  Register on athletic.net.

The Community Open Race occurs after the high school events are completed, and follows the same course.  The registration fee is $5.  Club teams and open runners are welcome to participate.  Unattached registration can be done in-person on race day at the registration tent, or online at the following link:

Coaches are encouraged to participate free of charge (register in-person at registration tent).

There will be trophies for the top three teams in both the varsity boys and the varsity girls race. Medals will be given to the top ten individuals in the varsity races. Ribbons will be given to #’s 11-20, top ten finishers in the boys JV top 7, the girls JV, and the top 5 per gender in the community open race.
