Please get the following email to your Cross Country coaches immediately, as it has important updates and info for them and their parents about the Cross Country Regionals on Saturday here in Traverse City.

·         There is a $10.00 per car OR $5.00 per person admission charge, so carpooling is encouraged and less expensive!!!  Please remind your parents, spectators and fans to drive together.

·         There will be a designated team parking area for busses, vans and cars off of Lautner Road.  This area is for busses, vans and cars that have multiple runners in their vehicles so that we can make sure we have enough room for all team vehicles.  Other vehicles will be asked to park in the Spectator Parking area off of Village Dr. approximately 700 meters from the start/finish lines.

·         Busses, team vans and cars will enter the Resort off of M-72 at Lautner Rd.  and park in the designated bus/team areas near the start off Lautner Rd.  Busses entering Lautner Rd. are asked to enter the designated parking area and keep athletes in their bus until they park.

·         Spectators will enter the Resort off of US-31 and Village Dr. (the main Resort entrance)  and proceed through the Resort property to the Spectator parking lot. There will be signage and parking lot attendants to guide traffic to these places.

·         Coaches are reminded to check in at the Packet Pick-up tent to get their team bibs and other course info, immediately upon arrival.

·         The course has been  measured using USATF procedures with a Jones Counter and is marked with a solid white line, and that 1, 2, and 3 mile marks are marked with signs.  Athletes should follow flag colors red- left, blue - straight, yellow - right.  We have placed over 70 flags on the course to guide the runners.

·         Please be prepared for cold temps, rain and winds….though we are hopeful the forecast and weather may change!
