Meet Notes – This is a favorite of many Evergreen runners, and for good reason. It’s a good mixture of open and wooded areas with both flat and hilly terrain, and several of our high school runners have their personal records on this course as it has hosted the District Championship the last few years and was the NWOAL League Meet course last year.  It is also a spectator friendly course, offering several locations to cheer on the runners (particularly at the start and finish).  Overall, it is a very well organized event and should be a great meet.

For this particular invitational, this course has been known to be a little more muddy and has included a water hazard (“shallow water crossing”) at the bottom of the hill near the end of the race.  Last year, there wasn’t much of an option other than going through the water, so plan accordingly as far as extra shoes/clothes for after the race.  Also, because of the number of schools running, they have separated the high school races into two divisions.  Evergreen runs in the second of the two divisional races, so there will be a bit of a gap between the middle school and high school races.

*There will be concessions available. However, we ask that athletes have a healthy breakfast that morning and NOT eat concession food until after they have competed. We will have healthy snacks provided by parents; athletes are strongly encouraged to partake of these after competing.
