Start Format

To allow for social distancing at the start we will be scoring over all winners based on 'gun time' and age group winners based off 'chip time'.  We ask for elite runners going for the win to toe off first at the start line.  There is no need to stand crowded together at the start line.  All runners will receive an official 'chip time' based off the time they individually cross the start line to their finish.  The 'chip time' is used for all age group ranking.

We ask that all runners wear a face mask during packet pickup / checkin, and that you practice social distancing during the event.  Runners do not need to wear masks while racing.

In Memory of Lisa Napoletano

Lisa Napoletano was a Freshman this past year at Marian and a member of the Cross Country and Track and Field teams. Early this March, she was involved in an unfortunate ATV accident and passed away from her injuries. The Marian Community, Cross Country Team, and Track and Field Team was blessed to know her and have her in our lives, even for such a short period of time. Part of this event is dedicated to her memory and the impact she had on her school and her teams. In order to honor her, her family has set up a scholarship fund and non-profit organization "Lisa Napoletano-Running with the Angels" honoring her memory that is awarded to a member of the Cross Country Team, Track and Field Team, or is active in Snowboarding and that display strong team spirit and values academics. This option allows you to donate towards the scholarship fund in her memory as she Runs with the Angels.
