We are officially set for Sunday 9/17 at Veteran’s Park in Wilmington, first race 2pm. Registration, packet pick-up will open at 1pm, followed by a coaches meeting and course walk thru at 1:30. There will be 4 races: Girls Elementary, Boys Elementary, Girls Middle School, Boys Middle School.

Address is:  835 Halyburton Memorial Pkwy, Wilmington, NC 28403.  Start/ Finish will be by the picnic shelter, which is right near the large water tower. The park has full bathrooms available, water fountains, and an enclosed playground for small children.

Course length for B/G Elem will be approx. 1.4 miles, and B/G MS 2.1miles. Terrain will be 99% grass and dirt (a couple sidewalk crossings). Our aim is to keep the distances similar to the lengths that many athletes will compete in at the USATF JO Champ meets.

We are pleased to have GO Time https://its-go-time.com/ , a regional race management company HQ in Wilmington, timing the races. Registration is now open on MileSplit NC  http://nc.milesplit.com/meets/290089/info#.Waw-ppU2yM8

Awards will be given to the top 10 individual runners per race, and top overall team per race.

Any questions, or concerns please reach out to me at anytime via telephone (704) 517-6948 or email gmzinner@hotmail.com. I will send out at least 1 more email prior to the event w/ any last minute details.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone, and excited to get the 2017 XC off and running.  In the words of coach Joe Lancaster, giddy up!
