We will have athletic trainers and student trainers available.
Our training staff has asked each team do the following:
Please bring training equipment for each of your teams in regards to pre-race wrapping etc. They will be attending mainly to those who need support after a race finishes.
BRING YOUR OWN WATER
Please consider bringing your own team ice for post-race needs. Our trainers will have water stations at finish line and limited ice for injuries.
Teams wanting to preview the race course may do so on Friday 9.15.23 after 12:00 PM or the morning of the race. Please be aware that the park will most likely lock the bus gate entrance in the afternoon on Friday 9.15.23. Your team can still preview the course, but you will have to park your bus along the road and crawl through/hop the gate to access the course.
Bus Parking Gate Opens at 5:00 AM. If you arrive before 5:00 AM your team will most likely have to wait until park staff unlock the gate.
Buses are to enter the park on the north side of the park. At 7:15 AM we will shut down the bus entrance road . After that time you will have to enter at the show barns entrance, park behind the show barns in the bus parking lot, and walk your teams to the camp sites. The entrance available before 7:15 AM crosses the racecourse and racing will begin at 7:15 AM – therefore we must close this entrance at 7:15 AM.
If you arrive before 7:15 AM to drop teams off at team camp area, please pull forward as far as possible – all the way to the restrooms just south of the camp area – this will allow as many teams to drop off as well. If you stop your bus without pulling forward as far as you can, you will slow down the unloading process. Please be considerate with this process. Thank you.
Once you unload your teams you will pull forward and park in the Bus Parking Lot.
Teams Arriving after 7:15 AM
Teams arriving after 7:15 AM will need to enter using the orange route on the below parking map. If bus parking lot is full you will be directed to park in the overflow bus parking area. Once parked you will need to walk your teams to the team camp area.
Picking Up Teams/Leaving the Park:
Teams needing to leave before the meet is concluded will need to walk teams to the Bus Parking lot to load team buses. Buses will need to exit near the show-barn area from the bus parking lot. Buses will not be allowed to drive near the team camp area until ALL race divisions are completed – the park officials do not allow buses to enter near the course area while races are still active. In addition, we cannot have buses crossing the race course while races are taking place.
Once ALL race divisions are completed buses may drive to team camp area and pick up teams to exit gate that was available before 7:15 AM.
Spectator parking will be at the top of the hill on the west side of the park. NO PARKING ALONG THE ROADWAY! See parking and course maps below.
Spectators should plan to arrive at least one hour before their runners race. There will be a lot of spectators who attend this event. It is recommended to arrive early to avoid backed up traffic entering and exiting the spectator parking area.
Kona Ice will also be on site selling Snow Cones.
