NOTE: Awards will be given out near the finish line on a rolling basis once the results from a race are finalized. There will be no ceremony at the end.


Note: NNHS gets out of school at 3:10. It is best to arrive prior to that (and have the bus wait off site after dropping off) OR wait until 3:30 or later to arrive. Arriving between 3:10-3:30 is probably not a good idea. 


Awards: Custom awards will be presented by New Balance and given to the first 20 individuals in each race. Team awards will be given to the top two teams in each varsity race and the team champion in the F/S and JV races. Awards should be picked up by athletes or coaches at the table near the finish line once a race is finalized.


T-Shirts: T-shirts will be on sale for $20 each, including tax. They are custom designed by New Balance for this event. There will also be a limited number of hooded sweatshirts available for $60 each, including tax. Please let the athletes know that all items are limited in quantity and will be on a first come, first served basis. 


Team Camps: Team camps should be put up on the grass on the east and south side of the track, behind the visitor bleachers.

Spectators: There will be a $5 charge to enter the stadium, where the races finish and the awards will occur. Races finish in the stadium, and awards will be presented there as well. Parking will be available on site at North and, when the lot fills, adjacent to the NNHS property on both 5th Avenue and Benedetti Drive, as well as in the shopping center just west on Benedetti. All are short walks to the school. Please ask spectators to NOT park in the office park just south of the building on 5th Avenue. They will be towed.

Concessions: Will be available within the stadium.
