18th ANNUAL GLORY DAYS GRILL INVITATIONAL
CROSS COUNTRY FESTIVAL
WHEN: Saturday, October 9, 2010
WHERE: Bull Run Regional Park-Special Events Center
TIME: See Enclosed Schedule
SPECIAL NOTES FOR THIS YEAR: As you look at the schedule, you will note that we are racing later this year. This is due to a major scheduling conflict within the park. This is certainly not something we anticipated, and we have worked extremely hard to resolve this. Originally we were going to be denied the opportunity to run on this date, but we have worked around that. However, our schedule will be very truncated, and with a large crowd we need your cooperation to help the event run smoothly. Please pay careful attention to the directions we send out with respect to when you may access the park, check in times, etc.
You will also need to pass this information along to your parents that they should plan to get there early. In the last few years we have had too many people parking their cars on the side of the road because they didn't factor in enough time to park their cars and get to the course. We will have marshals down at the bottom of the drive this year to prevent this, but we need your help in reiterating to your parents the need to get there early.
ADMISSION: $5 per car
