Meet Notes – Last year was the inaugural Fulton County Invitational, and the meet served the dual purpose of fostering a friendly, competitive atmosphere between local programs and giving Wauseon the chance to prep for the NWOAL Championship a few weeks later. Thankfully, unlike last year this year’s meet will be neither on a Tuesday evening nor run in blazing heat. The temperature should be in the upper 50’s and cloudy, so it should definitely feel like fall.
For spectators, the course is fairly accessible, with the start and finish in open areas about a quarter mile apart. There are a couple loops through wooded trails in the first and third miles, but most of the course is out in the open. As such, it’s a fairly flat course with the only “hills” being some minor up-and-down in the woods during the last mile. Not the fastest course we run, but certainly one that can bring some good times.
A word of warning: there’s quite a bit of poison ivy along the woods and trails, so we recommend staying out of the brush. The trails can also have runners going both directions at times, so please be aware of runners and don’t block the course.
