Restrooms and Garbage: There are Park restrooms located throughout the facility and also Port-a-Johns. Each team should bring garbage bags. We are guest of the park and would like to continue to use this facility. We have actually had a discussion about creating a Cross Country venue designated specifically for cross country races.

Race Management and Scoring: Runners are instructed to follow the course line, marker arrows, marker flags and cones throughout the course. General Instructions regarding the cones and course markings:

  • Run between any PAIRS of cones or flags; but if the line directs you between a single cone or flag and the road, stay between the marker and the road!
  • Various points of the course will be marked with two white lines. Stay between the lines.
  • After walking the course please inform race management of any confusing areas on the course. We will do our best to alleviate your concerns. Otherwise, it is the responsibility of the runner to know the course.
