The distance is about 1/2 mile. You may leave the meet as soon as your child is done with their race and has recorded their finishing place with the scoring table. We encourage those who can, to stay and cheer on the rest of their teammates!!!  We will run in the rain!  The district will cancel if there is thunder, lightning or hail.
