Meet Notes – We ended up with this as an off week last year when the meet was essentially rained out (storms came through with lightning delays, and we made the call to cancel as we had no off weeks all season).  While the rest was good, it was disappointing because this is a favorite race for a lot of Viking runners, both middle school and high school. We’re excited to return this year and the weather is shaping up to be really good (partly cloudy, high of 61…so in the 50’s at race time).
Though not quite as big as Tiffin, this is a larger meet with a pretty festive atmosphere (including some music and dancing).  The course itself is pretty decent, with a combination of wooded trails, open grass fields, and a great downhill finish.  This meet does have varsity boys and girls races, so those not in the top seven will run in the large open race at noon. This race is also open to anyone who wants to run, and it’s not uncommon to have some runners in full costume. Any spectators who want to participate are more than welcome!
From a spectator standpoint, a good portion of the race is viewable from the start/finish area. Travel time from the high school is approximately 45 minutes. Please be advised they do charge $5 per person for entry so plan accordingly.  We do realize that there is a boys’ varsity soccer game at Whitmer later that afternoon, but we do ask everyone to stay as long as possible to cheer on your fellow Viking runners, and we remind you to notify us in advance if you will be leaving early.
