Park City Invitational Info

The Park City Invitational is at the Quinn's Junction Sports Complex east of Park City.  There is limited parking, so the meet organizers are encouraging spectators to carpool where possible.

There is an open race preceding the high school races.  I believe they allow day of race registration for the open race.

9:30 Open Race (hopefully nobody has to call 911 for me)
10:10 JV Girls
10:50 JV Boys Schools A - L

Snap Raise Fundraiser

The success of this fundraiser has blown me away. I was expecting we could raise in the neighborhood of $1500 - $2000 and we blew past that.  We currently have just over 73% participation which gets up another 7% of what we keep.  Thanks to all of you for your efforts. The goal, which I thought was unrealistic, was reset twice.

BYU Update with new time schedule

Due to air quality concerns in Utah County from wildfires, the BYU meet has been moved to the USU course in Logan.  The bus departure time is the same.  We will stop at Aggie Ice Cream after the meet. We will probably be getting back at about 4:30. We will arrive before the women's race starts, so we will be able to watch both college races and have plenty of time to set up camp before the meet starts.

The college races have been moved to the first two races of the day at 9:00 and 9:30 and the high school races starting at 10:00.  The JV and Fr/So races are now combined and will be at 11 and 11:30. Be prepared for the boys and girls races to flip. We will

10:30 am Varsity Girl's 5K
11:00 am JV Fr/So Boys 5K

The main parking area will be in the gravel lot at the east end of the course.  Do not park on 1400 N, those cars will be towed.   If that lot fills, there is parking at the football stadium that will require a short walk to the course.

BYU Information and Schedule

The BYU Autumn classic is held on a fast East Bay XC course.  This course is flat and and 100% grass and hopefully dry this year.  Last year there was a giant mud bog that shoes were lost in.  This is a spikes course. There is a college meet in the middle of our meet which is fun as well.

Spectator Admission: BYU is charging a $6 admission fee for this meet.

Parking: Parking at the course is reserved for teams and race officials. There are a number of businesses nearby that have lots you can park in.

The race schedule may be pushed back if there is frost on the course in the morning.

9/5 Home Tri-Meet Info

Our only home meet of the year is at Crestwood Park 1700 E. Siesta Dr., this is the same place and course as our pre-season time trial. You can either take Keswick or Caballero off Creek Rd to get there.

I need course set up volunteers to get there about 1:00. I will have race flags and finish chute posts and flags in the back of my truck in the parking lot.  I will leave a list of where on the course we need to place flags. Other race volunteers will need to be there by about 3 so we can get people out on the course and familiar with the directions they will be giving.  I will have a list of place we need course marshals.

The girls race will start at 3:30, the boys at 4sh.
