Lake Middle School Invitational Thu. 8/23 (Middle School only)

Lake Middle School
28100 Lemoyne Road
Millbury, OH 43447
3:00pm – Bus leaves from Middle School (est. arrival 4:00pm)
5:00pm – First race (assume a race kicking off every 30 minutes or so)
8:00pm – Estimated return time
Meet Notes – This is a unique one for the Middle School runners as they run 7th grade and 8th grade separately, so the new 7th grade runners are a little more relaxed not having to compete directly against the 8th graders. This is also the only non-Saturday race we run during the season, so it’s a little out of the ordinary. We continue to run this race every year though as it’s a great introduction to cross country for our new runners.
From a spectator standpoint, as mentioned above the course seems to change annually so it’s a good idea to arrive early enough to check out the course map and decide where to view the race. There are usually plenty of places to cheer on the middle school runners, and with the start and finish usually right near the same area it’s easy to see both without having to run all more than the athletes!
**There will be concessions available. However, we ask that athletes have a healthy lunch 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 before and after competing.
