This year we will have a 12-15 team cap per division to allow for spacing at the starting/finish area and throughout each race. There will be a max of 10 runners per race division as well to keep races smaller.
*Please enter your athletes in the appropriate level. The fastest runners should be in the A race. Slower runners would be in the B or C race. It is even more important this year to allow the proper flow of racing to occur throughout the event. My suggestions preseason for levels of these races are as follows: 
Large School A Boys - Sub 18:15
Large School B Boys - 18:15 to 20:45
Large School C Boys - above 20:45 / remaining runners
Large School A Girls - Sub 20:55
Large School B Girls - 20:55-23:25
Large School C Girls - above 23:25 / remaining runners
Small School A Boys - Sub 20
Small School B Boys - 20-22:30
Small School C Boys - Above 22:30 / remaining runners
Small School A Girls - Sub 22:00
Small School B Girls - 22 - 24:45
Small School C Girls - Above 24:45 / remaining runners
*If you will communicate up front that you have a special circumstance such as 8 A team runners and 2 C team runners, I will work with you on waiving the cost for the C division, but that is how you should enter your runners. You should NOT simply put your 2 C team runners in the A team race because you have a total of 10 runners and that is the more convenient option. Thank you!
*Please plan accordingly knowing these details up front.
*If you are a small school that would like to participate in the large school races on Saturday please contact me ASAP to check if there will be room. 
*We follow the school size category of the AHSAA, therefore, out of state private schools must multiply enrollment by1.35% (grades 10-12) to determine the division that your team will compete in.

The City of Huntsville will be charging $5 for parking per vehicle. Please let your community know this with plenty of notice. Exact change will make this much smoother. Early arrival is suggested as spillover lots will be a bit further of a walk, and or plan for time spent waiting for a shuttle bus. There will be plenty of handicap parking near the course.
