Meet Notes – This is the inaugural running of this invitational and a chance for Wauseon to go through the process of hosting a meet prior to hosting the NWOAL Championships on October 14.  The high school and middle school runners had an opportunity to preview this course a couple weeks ago, and this is an opportunity for us to run a full race on the course before competing at leagues.  We don’t typically run full invitationals in the middle of the week, but Wauseon had to accommodate the fact that many schools already had invitationals booked on these weekends in advance and indicated that they will be looking to host on a Saturday next year (likely the weekend after Widewater).
Based on what we saw at the preview, this promises to be a pretty fast course so we’re looking forward to a chance to run it a couple times (for those of you familiar with Homecoming Park: no, we do NOT have to run up Homecoming Hill!).

 

Parking will be a little tricky so please refer to the information linked above as there are several designated locations.  It will also still be pretty hot Tuesday and the start/finish area is in an open field, so plan accordingly.  There are restroom facilities at the main pavilion/finish as well as near the starting area.
