Bill Kehoe Invitational Update

Please see the following notes provided by our host, Coach Weber of Northwest Christian:

Shirts for sale

We hope you and your team are as excited about the meet this Friday night as we are!

We wanted to let you know that we will be offering Bill Kehoe Cross Country Invitational Shirts for purchase for $14 each.

We have sizes Extra-Small to Large available. Please pass this information on to your teams so they can bring money for a shirt.

More logistical information

We have 38 teams and close to 600 runners signed up for the race this year! The largest race of the day is the boy’s combined (varsity and Junior Varsity) race with about 250 runners. There is a large starting area for the race. However, you should give your runners fair warning that the start of the race is going to be somewhat congested and to plan accordingly.

It is a judgement call as to whether or not you want your runners to wear spikes. Approximately 4600 meters of the 5k course is run over grass or dirt. However, there is a 200 meter downhill section on cement at about the 3200 meter mark. The grade of the downhill is fairly gradual; however, it is a very fast part of the course. Most of our kids are using spikes.

The High School 5k course matches the Saint Martin’s University Collegiate course. The middle school race is 1.3 miles not 1.25 miles as stated on the information section of athletic.net.

Saint Martin’s staff is asking that spikes be a quarter inch or smaller since part of the race is on a small section of their track.

Since we have new race courses this year, we had to make new course maps. We will place the new course maps in your race packets and give them to you when you arrive on Friday.

Food

As always, we will provide dinner for the athletes after their race. Just have your athletes come to the food table behind the bleachers after their race to get their pizza. We are buying enough pizza for all coaches as well. Please stop by and pick up your pizza when you have a free moment.

We are looking forward to seeing you on Friday!
