****Some age groups will be combined in the distance races for the competition itself but these will still be scored and given awards separately.
Fees are $15 per individual ENTRY and $40 per relay ENTRY. There are no limits in entries, we will be verifying all times to ensure seeding is properly done. We would prefer to have no "NT" seeds so that we can seed this entire meet and give legitimate estimated time schedules.
