When: July 22, 2009; 7pm race start
Where: Gaithersburg High School
Cost: $5 to race, paid in cash or check on race day
Mocorunning.com in conjunction with the Georgetown Running Company will host two summer cross country races this summer.
The first race will be at Gaithersburg High School on July 22nd. Cost to run will be $5 cash or check paid on race day. Free to watch and cheer on your friends and teammates. Donations will be greatly appreciated!
Georgetown Running Company will be timing the event so racers will have an official result posted on mocorunning.com.
The course will be a 5k course that is slightly different from the course used for the Montgomery County Championship Meet. The start will be modified to avoid running on a patch of newly planted grass between the baseball and softball fields. The only difference is that runners will start on the upper practice field above the softball field, funnel around the left of the softball field and and join up with the county championship course. A course map is available here: http://www.mapmyrun.com/run/united-states/md/gaithersburg/925124813931937324
The race start time will be 7:00 pm sharp. Show up early to register and warm up properly. We have to be out of the track area by 8pm so there will be a race time limit of 50 minutes. You can still cool down on your own.
You may not enter the Gaithersburg High School building at any time. There will be one porta-potty available for use. BRING YOUR OWN WATER AND FLUIDS TO DRINK!!!
This is a great opportunity for runners of all ages and abilities to race on what is typically a fast course. Measure yourself up against all the high school runners from the past ten years who have raced on this course.
Please encourage your friends and teammates to attend.
This event is a fundraiser for Mocorunning.com. Proceeds will help offset costs associated with maintaining the website, traveling to cross country and track meets, and buying new and upgraded video camera and photography equipment. The more that is raised, the better the coverage of Montgomery County cross country and track & field will be in the upcoming school year.
Mocorunning Summer XC Race #2 will be at Watkins Mill High School on August 5 at 7pm. See the event page here for more info. Please come to one or both to practice racing on these championship courses and support mocorunning.com.
Thank you! I will see you there.
