DISTRICT MEET @ STONY POINT HS (10/17) INFO

PARKING, TIME, AND LOCATION: We are at Stony Point HS! We are going to run tomorrow! Yes, it will be COLD, and it will be WET and MUDDY!!! We will start at 4:30 pm with girls racing first and boys following. The start/finish area where we normally start is in bad shape. We will use the practice fields closer to the school for the course. Parents can park at the softball/baseball field and walk in or park at Hernandez Middle School and walk across. The black top area by the high school will be a great place for spectators to watch and stay out of the mud.

Reminder: High school gets out at 4:20, girls/girl parents should try to be there by 4:10. Boys should be there by 4:35.

WHAT TO WEAR: You may wear leggings and/or long sleeves under your jersey. Also you will want to protect your ears and fingers. Wear gloves or even an extra pair of socks on your hands. You may leave on extra layers like a hoodie or jacket until right before race time, and then we will take off extra layers right before starting. Also, if you plan on staying around for the medals and district awards, please consider bringing a change of shirt, extra hoodie, and/or a blanket.
