Course Location - Woodland Park, Seattle WA
The course will be open to jog at 3 PM on Friday if anyone will be up in Seattle. We will not be meeting as a team to do so, but feel free to do a walk-jog of the course.
Apparently parking will be an issue and there are specific instructions for overflow parking. Please read below. We've been told it will be evident when you arrive.
Parking near the packet pickup up area will be limited.
Additional parking will be available east of the course near the playfields on Green Lake Way North and at the north end of the course (just beyond point “A” on the course map) accessible from West Green Lake Way (take the road up the hill past the tennis courts and the off-leash area). These parking lots are approximetly a 10 minute walk to the check-in area.
Qualification Process For Nationals
The top 5 teams (8 athletes per team) and the top 30 individuals at regionals will qualify for nationals. Unlike the state meet where we split our rosters to try and qualify as many teams as possible for regionals, we will focus on trying to qualify one team from regionals to nationals. For any of our teams, the top 8 BTC finishers at regionals will fill the spots on the nationals team, regardless of which team on they are entered under for regionals. In other words, an athlete entered on a "B" team for regionals can still make the nationals team if they finish in the top 8 BTC finishers at regionals.
