We, like every other coach, are in a real scheduling dilemma - which meets on the calendar are going to happen and which are not. We understand that we are in uncertain times and things can change in a moment's notice but it would really be helpful if you could give us a: "we are on, and will find a way to host our meet" or "we are about 50/50 right now" or "sorry we simply can't host this year." Any word would be extremely helpful. Thanks.

Coach Wood is on and we will find a way to host our meet. Will have to adjust some things but not sure what that will look like right now.

We still plan to host the Darlington Cross Country Festival. We have a planning meeting again this week to make sure we follow recommendations/guidelines and make the event as low risk as possible. Our numbers seem to be down a little bit this year and I am not sure if that is coaches holding off On scheduling to see how the academic year will start or the fact that Sept 26 has become a popular weekend this year. Big Peach moved the Mustang Stampede back a week and Cartersville HS is hosting a meet that weekend which puts 3 decent meets at the same time within 30 miles. However we still plan to put in a great meet and hope to see you here.

Franklin County's Invitational on Sept 12th is still on and can handle more teams. We have plenty of space for social distancing and are putting in more areas for teams and spectators. The course is 8 to 12 feet wide in all locations and the starting area is big enough to have plenty of space in between teams. We have also redesigned our finish area for plenty of space for competitors to be distanced in the chute. I will have a video of our course up in a few days. [b]TO TOP IT OFF[/b]... [b]THERE[/b] [b]IS NO ENTRY FEE FOR SCHOOLS THIS YEAR[/b]. We also are in discussions to be able to add at least one more meet to the calendar later in the season.

The Pickens Preview is still on (with some adjustments to the format and schedule). Middle school races have been moved to Friday (8-14) night, and all high school Varsity and JV races on Saturday will be run in two separate heats to alleviate crowding at the start and finish. It'll make for an interesting meet, but we're happy the kids will get to run! We still have room for a few more teams!

As of July 28th ... Mountain Invite at Unicoi is ON and FULL for October 1st ... look for information on possibly moving the Middle School event to Wednesday, September 30th, to make more room at the venue. An unfortunate move, but necessary. North Hall Invite is ON for Thursday, September 10th, and has room for a few more high school teams. Contact sam.borg@hallco.org if you need any more info. *No water at finish lines - teams supply their own water bottles. *Finish chutes longer to provide ample space for runners *Encouraging fans/parents/spectators to greet their finishing runners near their team area instead of congregating at the finish line. Difficult tasks, but necessary and we will do whatever it takes to be able to RACE!
