Meet Information

Starting Times:         11:00 AM - Men's 8k Varsity Race and 11:45 AM - Women's 5k Varsity Race
Rosters:                      Please email me a roster with all possible entries by Friday, October 16th.  

Course:                       The courses start and finish in the rear of the athletic facility by the baseball field. The surface is grass, trails, cinder, woodchip and has a small portion on the pavement (approx. 150m). Spikes are recommended and the terrain is rolling, and a little uneven on the field loop. Even a chance that it could be a little wet depending on the weather

Athletic Trainer:       A certified athletic trainer will be on site. Please bring your own supplies. Ice and water will be available at the finish line. For more
specific details of our athletic training facilities, please call the Training Room directly at (413) 542-2363.

Lockers:                     Come dressed to race as locker facilities will be at a premium but if needed, we should be able to find options (please let me know in advance if this will be needed) Bathrooms will be open in the Orr Rink which is located at the start/finish area.

Results:                       Results will be printed and available at the conclusion of the meet as well as emailed and being put on our website by that evening.

NOTES : We are looking forward to having you and your teams for our annual XC showdown. The course may be wet in parts of the field loop - depending on mother nature but XC is about mud and dirt! If you have any questions or concerns then please do not hesitate to contact me either via phone or email. It is our Homecoming Weekend so things are going to be rather hectic around here but with the races a little earlier, it should help to alleviate some concerns such as parking as other sports would not be starting until a bit later in the day.

In running,
