Quick points for Saturday:
  • Bus will leave promptly at 8:45 from the MS bus loop.  Please arrive between 8:30 and 8:40.  The bus will take athletes to the race and home from the race.  Your athlete is permitted to ride home with their parent after the race as long as they SIGN out at TEAM Camp.
  • It is going to be HOT and muggy!  Bring plenty of water.  Also eat a good breakfast.  Bring healthy snacks for before the race.  Bring $ for concession stand and t-shirts.
  • Admission to get in:  $6 for adults, $4 for kids.
  • Race is at Pickerington North High School.  7800 Refugee Road.
  • Girls will run at 11:30.
  • Boys at 12:00.
  • Give yourself plenty of time to park and walk to the course.    
  • See handout below for more information. 
  • If you signed up to bring snacks, you can either send them with your runner in the am or bring them with you to the meet.  
IS there a parent who would be willing to take the TEAM CANOPY HOME AFTER THE MS RACE?  It is too big for the bus.  Varsity is taking it to the race, but if we want it for the MS race for shade we need a parent willing to take it back to the HS
Good Luck and Go Eagles~
