Next Sunday, Oct 14th is our home meet. Although racing is not mandatory, the home meet is a great developmental meet to try a race. Here is what you need to know for the meet:
Where: Elm Ave Park in Delmar NY 12054 – sign in by the back pavilion
Parking: in the front by the tennis courts to cut down on road traffic for the runners. Please be aware that there is a haunted hayride going off in the front of the park but if we can contain the parking to the front – it should be fine.
Time: Walk through starting at 2:00 and 2k goes off at 3:30 and 3k goes off at 4:00. Many of our runners already know the course as we have been practicing in during practice. So if your runner feels comfortable they can come at 3:00 to sign in and warm up. We do like to promote the 2k runners to cheer for the 3k runners and we like the 3k runners to cheer for the 2k runners. So please try to stay for the entire meet.
Concessions: We are hosting the meet – and we ask all running families to bring a healthy snack to share with the other teams that are coming. It is nice to end the meet with a celebratory snack. Suggestions of a healthy snack are bananas, granola bars, apples, pretzels.
Attire: Please where your blue Delmar Track and Field Shirt. Please let us know if you still need one.
Volunteers: There will be a sign at the Pavilion where I will meet volunteers to give instruction and placement. I will be emailing people to confirm placement on the course.
Feel free to email me at email@example.com
with any questions. Cross your fingers for good weather as we have rented the pavilion and this race will happen rain or shine. Thanks! Katie Hodge
