Safety Protocols:

  • Please understand that these protocols are not up for discussion and/or argument on race day. Any clarifying questions should be asked prior to race day. Protocols will be followed without question by all participating teams, failure to do so will result in the entire team being removed from the event.
  • Face coverings must be worn by coaches and spectators at all times.
  • Face coverings must be worn by all athletes when they are not warming up, racing, and cooling down.
  • Runners are permitted to have a gaiter around their neck while running.
  • Please make sure your team area is well clear of other teams. Team tents are NOT permitted. Please bring tarps and team flags only. Meet management does understand that gathering will have to take place (bib distribution), we ask that kids are always masked and socially distanced in your team area. Coaches, this will take a great deal of organization pre-race to ensure the event runs smoothly.
  • Spectators will have very limited access to runners on the course.
  • Spectators need to stay away from team camps, the starting line boxes and designated areas at the finish.

Spectator Limitations: Limitations will be in place. Final # is TBD.

Awards: Due to the pandemic there will not be an awards ceremony.  

Defending Champions: Mason Boys are 5 time defending and Lakota East Girls are 2 time defending champions.

Admission:  Online Ticketing will be used. Additional information will be provided to AD’s and Coaches for ticket purchasing. All tickets will be $5.00.  

Please note that there will NOT BE a park entry fee charged per vehicle!
