Archdiocesan Champs - 10/25

The order of events on Sunday will be:

2007 boys and girls
2008 boys and girls
2009 boys and girls
2010 boys and girls
novice girls
novice boys
minor girls
minor boys
cadet girls
cadet boys

This is a change from previous years!

First race goes off at 1 PM, with each race starting after a sufficient number competitors in the previous race have finished. (Generally 15 - 20 minutes apart) I would expect the sub-novice races to start approximately 10 minutes apart. 

Individual medals and team awards will be given out shortly after the cadet boys race is completed.

Parking will be an issue at Champs due to the increased size of participants, please plan to arrive early, and carpool wherever possible!

Commemorative 2015 CYO Cross Country Championship t-shirts will be for sale near the results & 50/50 sales. 

If you have ordered sweats or other items, please remember to pick them up near the end of the finish line chute. The earlier the better!

A reminder to all parents and coaches that the finish line area is completely off limits to spectators. Each week we have athletes who cross the finish line area with their bib number on creating phantom athletes - those blank spots in the pdf results.  If you need to access the restroom area, please walk behind the end of the finish line chute, cross the access road and come up the grass on the far side. 

Protests or questions should be lodged only by coaches.

Postseason forms & Meet 3 results.

I can't convert the .pdf file for Meet 3 results from Run the Day to excel, some kind of formatting quirk. Working on getting raw data.

FYI - Parent's and Coaches 3k run on the Minor course this Sunday at 12pm!
