“Most people run a race to see who is fastest. I run a race to see who has the most guts.” — Steve Prefontaine, Long distance 1972 Olympian
Covered Bridge is 5 days away…
Thank you to everyone who is pitching in!! Our volunteer slots are almost full. So grateful! There are two areas that need a few more volunteers:
Parking 8:30- 10:00 shift- 4 open shifts
Medical Tent- 1 open shift. (The weather is looking like it will be hot and we will need a full staff of volunteers. We were quite busy last year during a hot morning.)
Please see the Sign up Genius and help us out!
Parents: Parking information will be coming out this week. We have very limited parking inside the park, so we’d like to have parents/volunteers park off-site, with the exception of the very early morning volunteers. Be on the lookout for more info……..
Runners will need to be at RHS for the bus at 6:15 a.m. Early shift volunteers may bring their runner. We can use the extra hands!
Buses will not be returning to RHS until around 1:00 ish. Runners should always bring food/snacks with them to meets.
Also, we are hosting a Middle School Meet later in the evening All parents are invited to come back to watch – especially if you have a younger child who may be interested in running. Feel free to help us out with that meet too!
The High School XC runners will be working the Middle School Meet. The top 25 Boys and top 25 Girls are expected to be there. A bus will leave RHS at 4:30pm on Saturday to transport them to/from Garrard for the Middle School Meet. Expect buses to return by 8:00 ish. They should pack food as we won’t have much in the way of concessions at this short meet.
