Meet Notes – This is another first time meet for Evergreen, but it’s a great course with a storied history.  The course is a looping run around a park, with some gentle hills and pine tree-covered dirt trails.  This course can bring some really fast times: Andrew Jordan of Watkins Memorial ran a 14:44 at this meet three years ago, and Coach Schwan has some experience on this course as well from high school.

A few spectator notes:

  • Admission is $5 for anyone 13 and older
  • Parking along the lane that borders the course is fairly limited, but there is parking on the far side of the lake with a school bus shuttle to take spectators to and from the parking area. Not sure how often it runs, so if you’re making the trip be sure to give yourself enough time to get to the course.  The entrance to this area of parking is directly across Rt.61/309 from the entrance to the Galion Country Club.

We realize this is a long day with it being such a distant meet, and as such we are NOT planning to stop for food on the way home. We should have plenty of snacks and other food to keep everyone fed throughout the day.  As we are not running until midday, please make sure to get a good, full breakfast…a good balance of carbs and protein that will stick with you for awhile!
