2017 Cross Country State Tournament - Oct. 13Updated Thursday August 10, 2017 by NCHE Athletic Commission.
Coaches, ADs and Team Administrators,
We are excited about our upcoming NCHEAC State Cross Country Championship meet. It will be held on Friday, October 14th at Hagan Stone Park in Pleasant Garden, NC. . The park will be open all day for a walk thru of the course. It will be essentially the same course design as last year.
Time: Boys Race is at 4 PM; Girls Race at 5:00 PM; Award Ceremony – After girls race scoring completed
1) Come to the green registration tent to confirm the runners who will be with you for the meet and to pick up the map for your program.
2) You may do your walk thru of the course with your program, but there will not be a group walk thru since we will have over 150 runners.
3) The boys race will be completed before the girls start their race.
4) Timing will done via video timing in the racing bib with each runner wearing a numbered bib, but the clock will be turned off at 45 minutes.
5) The awards ceremony will not occur until after the girls race
We will need some volunteers from each of the programs. If we have 1 volunteer from each boys team and each girls team, that will allow us to use the spotters from the girls team to be on the course during the boys race and the spotters from the boys team to be on the course during the girls race. Since we will have video timing, we will not need to have any one timing with stop watches, but we will use some volunteers to give out place markers at the end of the chute. We will also need 2 people at the registration table to check runners and teams in. Please provide me with the name of your volunteer 1 week before the meet to aide in the administration of the meet.
