The bathrooms at the start line are intended for athletes who are about to start their race and coaches.
The buildings are not open to any athlete or spectators.
The starting area is roped off for coaches and athletes only, please help us keep spectators/parents out of this area as we begin to get ready to start the races.
We will be using timing chips for the races. The chips need to be distributed to the runner that they have been assigned to and placed on their shoe using the bread/zip tie.
Please remind them to make sure that the bread/zip tie is on correctly and does not simply slip back off. If a chip is lost it will cost $20 per chip, the timing company will contact you for the lost chips.
As they cross the finish line we will have volunteers cutting the chips off and returning them to the timing company. If a runner has zipped the tie too tight on their shoe string the workers will cut a shoe string to remove the chip.
Lastly, if you have runners that did not race, be sure to return those chips to the timing table as well. If not returned your team will be assessed $20 per chip.
As we receive the results, announcements will be made and they will be posted on the big blue board by the awards area.
Please check the results as soon as possible so that if any corrections need to be made we can make them early before the awards ceremony.
Awards: No awards for the open race.
The meet takes place on church property that they are graciously allowing us to use. We are just asking that the music choices show a sense of respect to the church members, the spectators and the neighborhoods that are nearby.
