Course Description: Fast 5,000m course on the historic Third Battle of Winchester battlefield, located adjacent to Millbrook High School's campus. The course will run on a variety of surfaces including grass, dirt, crushed stone, and some small gravel. The course consists of mostly flat land and small rolling hills. The course runs through cut grass and wide public walking paths. Racing flats or rubber-soled XC spikes are best suited for this course. We do not recommend plastic-plate track spikes due to occasional loose gravel.

Entry Process: Online via
Entries are DUE BY MONDAY, 10/14/13 at midnight.
Coaches MUST DECLARE varsity and JV when making their entries. We are allowing 8 runners in the varsity race because this is a late season race and a chance for coaches to finalize their top 7 runners for the upcoming post-season. If you declare 8 varsity runners, ALL 8 must run varsity. Team scores will only go through 7 runners (1-5 scoring, 6 & 7 displacing, 8 not counting at all). There will be no race day changes allowed. Unlimited JV runners.

Timing: This year's meet will use a brand new RFID timing system with manual timing and video as backup.

-Top 20 Varsity runners receive custom medals. First place girl and boy will receive acrylic plaques in addition to their medals.
-Top 3 teams receive engraved acrylic plaques.
Medal Design: Medals are designed in the shape of a Virginia Historical Marker, showing the canopy of trees associated with the Third Winchester Battlefield, as well as runners producing shadows of Civil War soldiers.

T-Shirts:: Will be made on site by American Screen Printing. Pricing TBD.

Spectator Parking : Located at Millbrook High School. Parking is approximately 1000m (.62 miles) from the starting line. No gate fees!

Team Drop-Off: Teams are now being asked to drop off athletes at Millbrook High School only. We apologize for the inconvenience.
