Meet Information

THE BRADDOCK RELAYS
September 16th, 2017- Under the Lights

Last year was a ton of fun. This year, we intend to keep the later start time. Have time for family and still get to see a Great Cross Country Event! The relay format really promotes a fun/team oriented atmosphere. THE ENTIRE COURSE WILL BE LIT!!! The races will be run on campus at Lake Braddock Secondary 9200 Burke Lake Rd., Burke, Va 22015. We will have a DJ playing music throughout and give-aways! There are open races for youth, parents, coaches! Everyone can participate!

We will be limiting the field to 25 schools. Reserve your team’s spot now by emailing Coach Mangan at bruinxctnf@aol.com

The race will be run on multiple surfaces with some hills. (Flats recommended over spikes) Each runner will run a 2500 meter loop. The course is quite spectator friendly.

WHY SHOULD WE RUN THIS EVENT?: It is a fresh break from the traditional CC format. It is also a low maintenance coaching event. Great access to athletes and no need to deal with formal entries. We ask each coach to send Coach Mangan a note on Thursday before the event with an approximate number of extra racers per gender so we can balance the sections.

COST: $200/school -- unlimited entrants.
Checks made out to:

 
Lake Braddock Boosters
 c/o LBSS Cross Country
9200 Burke Lake Rd
Burke, Va 22015

MISCELLANEOUS: Each school may enter a men's and women's A, B, C (the 'A' team should be your top 5 runners.....the 'B' team is your runners #6-10 etc...). Please keep your best kids on the appropriate relay. Any additional runners on your team can compete in the open 2500 meter Extras Races.





Spectators: $5.00 entry fee at the entrance to the facility.

Entry Fees for Open and Youth races included with your entrance fee. No need to preregister.

AWARDS: Trophies and medals will be awarded to the top three men's and women's 'A' relay teams. The top 15 Men and Women in the Extras Races will receive medals. 



TEAM AWARDS: We will award an overall men's and women's team champion based on team performance in 3 relays A, B, & C.
