Admission is $5 per person. CASH ONLY. The Nature Reserve also charges $5 per car and is taken separately as you enter the state park. Parking is interesting here as it is a single road in and out. It can take some time to park. Leave plenty of time to arrive on time.
Meet gear is being sold on-line rather than at the event. See link here: 
There will NOT be concessions sold at this race. Runners will need to bring snacks they prefer. The coaches will be stopping at a park nearby for a team picnic after the last race for lunch. The Booster Club is providing Chick-fil A lunch boxes.  
Lastly, meet organizers are hosting a canned food drive. Runners and families are encouraged to bring a can or two to the meet. Donations will be delivered to the Southeast Gwinnett Co-Op to support needs of the surrounding community.
