***TRAVEL: Summit XC athletes to load 2 yellow buses @ 4:45am Saturday at the back of Summit HS.  Bus departs SHS at 5:00am sharp!  All athletes must check in with a captain with a clipboard before boarding the bus.  We have a BIG team traveling, so plan on sharing seats!

Bus should arrive at Marist HS at 8:15am.  The Novice JV Girls and Boys 3K athletes will be the first to race, so they need to focus on their race preparation and attaching race numbers and chips for a 9:15am start.  Others will help set up the team tents and tarps and get bibs and chips sorted.

**Athletes are responsible for picking up your race number and timing chip from the coaches at least 1 hour before your race. Timing chips will be collected at the end of each race.  Do not lose your timing chip or you will be charged $25 loss fee.

**Remember: If you are not currently racing you will be expected to be out of the tent and cheering for all your teammates.

**Awards to follow the last race: Top 10 receive T-shirts in each race.  The top 2 JV teams and top 3 Varsity teams will get a trophy.  The Novice race will not be scored.     

**Buses will load immediately after the conclusion of the Team Awards at approximately 12:45pm. 

The team will make a quick stop at a Eugene Safeway for food on the way back to Bend.  Bus should arrive back at SHS at 4:45pm.  Athletes are to call parents on the ride back through Sisters to update on school pick-up time.  Parents: please be prompt in picking up your athletes at Summit in the back parking lot.


**Please note, athletes that do not return on the school bus on Saturday: must provide a parent written permission note or text 541-788-1577 (to Carol) and the student must personally check out with a Summit coach before leaving the race site after the team awards are completed.


**Packing List: Team uniform, training shoes and/or spikes, warm jacket and pants, white XC team T-shirt, Flashlight for the early morning vision, towel, dry pair of shoes and socks, change of clothes, sunscreen, watch, pillow, games, book, water bottle.   All athletes must bring food and drinks for breakfast and lunch.  Please bring money for dinner at a quick (20 minute) stop at a Eugene grocery store on the way home from the meet.

**Course: The 5K course is flat and fast and 90% on grass with a few asphalt crossings around the school grounds.  The 5K will consist of two 2500-meter loops.  The 3K course is one lap around the school plus an extra lap around the varsity soccer field.  There will be hay bale jumps.
