Meet Notes – O-G, Take Two. Last year we traveled all the way to Ottawa only to be told the meet was canceled due to rain because they were concerned about jeopardizing course conditions for the upcoming District meet hosted five weeks later. Disappointed but determined, we jogged the course anyway just to gain some familiarity and we’re looking forward to competing on it this season. This is widely known as a very fast course, and while it will feel small compared to Tiffin we will have some great competition to contend with.
From a spectator standpoint, the course (linked above) weaves back and forth across the park and offers numerous opportunities to cheer on runners. Several areas have the runners coming through one direction and back the other, so there are plenty of spots to watch from. The one mile and two mile marks are very close to each other and not far from the finish line.
