We will run on the above time schedule. Please have your team warmed up and ready. Fifteen minutes

before each race, an announcement will be made naming that race. One minute before the start of each

race, an air horn will be sounded. The starter will shoot the gun for the official start of each race.

Teams are not to warm-up on the course during a race. This would unfairly impede those racing.

We will be using chip timing. Therefore, it is important that you input your entries on the Web site

(data entry) . (by Oct 7th at NOON).


Due to the multilane chute, there will not be a card system backup for scoring. The finish line will be

videotaped so any discrepancies in the results can be reviewed by meet officials.

camps. Please adhere to these locations due to other park district activities going on.
