*Parking Note – Do not go to the main park entrance. Parking is off of County Road 4 west of the park and should be marked. There is a $5 charge for parking, and it’s a bit of a hike from the parking area to the starting line so plan accordingly.

Meet Notes – This course is a perennial favorite. It offers a little bit of everything: fast/flat first mile, grassy and rolling second mile, and the third mile includes wooded trails, a water hazard followed by a steep hill, and a flat, open finish. From a spectator standpoint, here is pretty good viewing of the start, one mile mark, and the finish (as well as “the hill” near the finish). Most of the rest of the course is accessible, just be prepared to get some exercise!
The high school band has a concert later the same day, with a report time at the high school of 3:33pm. While we anticipate the bus being back with an hour to spare, parents of participating band members may want to consider arranging for transportation as soon as the HS boys’ race is finished. We don’t want race delays, a lengthy awards session, or bus/traffic issues to prevent band students from getting to the school on time. Please let us know of any transportation arrangements BEFORE the meet if possible.
*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.
