Regionals Reminders


For all those racing tomorrow at regionals tomorrow (Saturday), there is a $15 entry fee for the race.  We will be collecting this when you arrive, and it can be paid in cash or check (NO Credit Card). Please plan to arrive at least an hour before your race.  Make sure to factor in time for parking.  It wasn't great for the state meet and it will likely be worse this weekend with many more teams participating.  The course will almost certainly be muddy again tomorrow.  We highly recommend wearing spikes for the race and make sure to bring warm dry clothes for after!


USATF has asked for a few volunteers to help direct parking and monitor the course.  With such a large team, it would be great if we could provide a couple people to help them out during the day.  If you are able to help for a period of time before, after or between your child's race, please let us know at the tent tomorrow.

Nationals Qualifying

The regional meet is the qualifier for the national meet in Birmingham, Alabama on December 10th.  To qualify for the national meet, you must be in the Top 30 individuals or the Top 5 teams (This was misprinted as 3 teams in an earlier email).  If a team qualifies, that allows 8 runners to advance as part of that team.  We hope to qualify a team in each age group, but there will be good competition from the Northwest region.  All BTC athletes racing at regionals are eligible to qualify for the BTC national team should we qualify one.  In other words, it does not matter which team they entered under at regionals.  The top 8 BTC finishers will fill out the team for nationals.
