PLEASE NOTE: There will be a $5 gate entrance fee for adult spectators and a $1 entrance fee for students not on the participating track team. No family will be charged more than $10.
Entries: ENTRIES CLOSE at 6:00PM THURSDAY 2/9! We will offer unlimited entries per event; however, it is necessary that all GHSA guidelines are followed. Since this is a meet with no field events and only one official relay, entry limits per athlete will be two open events and the 4x400.
Rules: All GHSA Track & Field rules will be enforced.
Seeding: VERY IMPORTANT. Due to the nature of this meet (for most, the first meet of the season), we will allow coaches to submit seed times based on their professional opinion of the athletes skill. It is crucial that this is done with accuracy to protect the integrity of this meet as the heats will be developed based upon submitted seed times.
Timing: FAT Timing will be done by The Perfect Timing Group.
Cost: $75 per gender or $125 for both guys and girls. Please make checks payable to Parkview Cross Country Booster Club. If mailed in advance:
