Athlete Screenings: All visiting team members must be pre-screened (including temperature checks) at their home school before attending the meet. Home team members will be screened upon arrival.
Team Camps and Warm-Up Locations: Each team will have a separate designated team camp area. ALL team members are expected to wear a mask and stay 6 feet apart while in the team camp area. Each team will have different warm-up routes (the route is .5 miles one way and is shown on the map). Dynamics and strides will need to be done in a location near the team camps...no run outs from the starting line.
Starting Line: A whistle and white flag being waved will determine when the starting area is ready for the athletes to come to from their team areas. We will have a front starting line and a second starting line 6 feet behind that. The front line will hold the 11 fastest runners from each team for that race. The line will be marked to have each runner 6 feet apart. The second line will also be able to hold 11 runners per team, each 6 feet apart on designated marks. (Numbers per team can be adjusted depending on team sizes).
Course (map provided): The course is flat and runs on grass and a crushed limestone trail. Each race will be led by someone on a bike.
Finish: When athletes come across the finish line, they immediately will be directed out of the finish area and back to their team camps. The finish will be video recorded for results.
Spectators: Please fill out this SPECTATOR FORM and bring with to our XC meet at Fink Park in HP if you plan to come and watch the meet. Spectators MUST wear masks, stay at least 10 feet away from the course, not gather with other spectators, and spectators are not allowed at the team camp!
Bathrooms: We will have portable bathrooms available for competitors. A mask must be worn when using the bathrooms.
Results: They will be provided later that evening via email and posted on www.hprunning.com .
