      2016 Invite Directions and Race Assignments

    Location/Facility: VVS Middle/ High School Campus. Bathroom, locker room facilities and gym will be available in the High School. For Rochester and Albany area schools, VVS is located about 2 miles from exit 33 on the Thruway.

    Course: Our course consists of challenging hills, open fields, and wooded trails. Wooded trails are fully mulched, hills are cover in stone dust and the open fields are grass. Spikes are highly recommended. The course is new(Many of old parts are still there).

    Upkeep: The course has been undergoing ongoing updating and maintenance since Sectionals in 2004. Many coaches’ comments and ideas have been put into place to help make this course more runner, coach and spectator friendly.

    Race Setup:    To add a bit of variety to our races, we are attempting to “randomly place” teams to reduce some of the repetitive inter-league match ups. All efforts will be made to attempt to keep the races equally competitive. We will have the race assignments posted on Tullyrunners by September 8th.

    Important:Timing and Scoring: Please enter your athletes through 
    milesplit by October 10th 

    As in previous years varsity and JV will run together. JV will be scored out of each race. JV teams start with runner #8. The rationale behind this decision is to allow teams to run together. Unlimited entries. Teams will be given a 12 foot  box and may "negotiate" with the team next to them if that team does not take up their entire box.

    Order of Events
