THE COURSE
This year the course has been improved to eliminate some of the major turns and improve the flow of the races.  The terrain is mostly grass.


ROSTERS
Please submit your roster by Monday September 25th. Rosters need to be entered using Athletic.net (Use the link to find directions on how to sign up online).
*It doesn't matter at all if you enter an athlete in a certain division and want to change them later. 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.

COMMUNITY OPEN RACE
The Community Open Race occurs after the high school events are completed, and follows the same course.  Registration can be done in-person on race day at the registration tent, or online at the following link:
Curtis XC Invitational 5k Community Race - Online Registration 
Coaches are encouraged to participate free of charge (register in-person at registration tent).
