THE COURSE The course is a mixture of grass, dirt road, trail, and a small amount of asphalt and sidewalk. XC spikes or flats may be worn.


Please submit your roster by next Monday (September 17). Rosters need to be entered in one of two ways:

--on Athletic.net(much preferred--will save me lots of time!):
1. Enter your rosters into the website using the above link (then find your school, then click the "edit athletes" link on the top of your school page)
2. Add the Curtis Invite to your schedule (using the "edit calendar" link)
3. Submit who will run at the Curtis Invite by using the "Register Athletes" link on the right of the meet front page (to get there click on the link to the Curtis Invitational on your schedule or use this link to get to the meet front page: http://www.athletic.net/CrossCountry/Results/Team.aspx?Cal=12027)
4. Enter in your athletes that you plan to have run at the Curtis Invite.

--email me a list of your athletes that you intend to have run and I will type them into Hy-tek myself. I don't need any certain format or entry form to do this.

It won't matter at all if you enter an athlete in a certain division and want to change them later, so don't worry about that too much. I 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.

The open race is free for any JV runners after the top five, as well as for coaches and parents who can enter on race day (there will be a suggested donation of $5 for community members).
