RANDOLPH CROSS COUNTRY CLASSIC CANCELED THIS YEAR
The annual "Randolph Cross Country Classic" (aka "Mud Run")
held on the campus of University of Alabama in Huntsville is being canceled for
the 2020 season. Based on NFHS guidelines, we technically could have this
meet in it's entirety, but it would extremely irresponsible for us to do so
under such current conditions due to COVID-19. Fingers crossed that we
will all be back to an "old normal" this time next year, providing we all do
our job as a citizen of our community staying socially distant and wearing our
facial coverings when 6 feet is not possible.
Thank you so much to all those that have attended this meet over the years. Please keep your kids safe along with your families during this time.

Greetings Cross Country Coaches:
This letter is hoping you are having a successful start to your season, knowing that keeping your athletes motivated and fit in this heat is a huge challenge. We wish all of you the very best on a great season.
Welcome to the 2020 edition of the Randolph School Cross Country Classic. Due to the immense popularity, the positive participation, and the great feedback over the years, we had to add races last year. Last year, we had about 1,100 runners traverse through the creek and we anticipate even more this year. As you may know, the course is popular with the athletes, being a true euro-cross course. Because of this, we want to remind you to remind your runners that they will get muddy and wet, and to plan accordingly. There are a number of hazards that we must always be vigilant in foreseeing during this meet.
RACE EVENT VENUE:
University of Alabama in Huntsville campus. The green space on the south west portion of campus, between I-565 (west), Sparkman Drive, and John Wright Drive.
We cant stress enough how important it is going to be to follow all the signs for dropping off athletes, spectators, and students. The area is crowded and we must stick to the plan.
Buses must drop off students in the Von Braun Research Hall parking lot just off John Wright Dr. (See enclosed map). Only passenger vehicles may park in this lot. Buses must drop people off here, then buses must move to parking lot just next to the Baseball fields (there will be signs to direct you). The grassy lot adjacent to the Von Braun Research Hall is the overflow for passenger cars.
Under no circumstances are buses to stop on John Wright Dr. to drop kids off! This causes huge traffic and safety concerns. UAH police will be ticketing anyone who violates these regulations.
