THE BRADDOCK RELAYS
September 25th, 2021- Under the Lights
Have time for family and still get to see a great cross country event with our late start time!
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.
There are open races for youth, parents, coaches! Everyone can participate!
Course map: goo.gl/WHg3Kj
We will be limiting the field to 25 schools.
Reserve your teams spot now by emailing Coach Switzer at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 Switzer 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 boys' and a girls' A, B, C (the 'A' team should be your top 5 runners.....the 'B' team is your runners #6-10 etc...).
