To confirm availability to participate in this year's meet, e-mail Ben Mangrum at bmangrum@upsd.wednet.edu.  Add the Curtis Invite to your calendar on Athletic.net (found here). We will limit the meet to 50 teams.

Please submit your roster by Tuesday, September 30th at 11:59 pm. Rosters need to be entered using Athletic.net (Use the link to find directions on how to sign up online).
*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. 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.

Coaches and parents are encouraged to run in the Community Open Race, and you can enter on race day at the registration area (there will be a suggested donation of $5 for community members, but coaches are free of course).

Live results will be available at the following link during the meet:  GC.TrackScoreboard.com

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.

$100 for a boys and girls team / $75.00 for either a boys or girls team. Please have your accounts office send your entry fee by Thursday, October 3rd, and make the check out to Curtis High School. The mailing address is:

There will be t-shirts and other apparel available for purchase at the entrance to the park, provided by NW Designs.

There will be a certified trainer available before, during, and following the meet.  There will also be a few food vendors on site for your convenience.

There will be a shuttle bus available from Chambers Primary School for parents and other fans due to the limited availability of parking in the lower lot. The bus will be leaving from Chambers Primary School (directions included in link), which is just down the street less than a mile from the golf course entrance, and will leave every 10 minutes or so starting at 8:00am. Spectators who park along the street on Grandview Ave will be able to catch the shuttle bus near the golf course entrance to ride down the hill to the meet.  The shuttle will also return passengers back up the hill and to Chambers Primary throughout the day until 1:00pm.

Buses will need to drop off athletes at the lower parking lot and relocate to Chambers Primary School (they should park alongside the street just outside the school).

Thanks for considering the Curtis XC Invite as a meet on your schedule. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
