After the success of the Daybreak Races, we're excited to move forward with a similar format for a mile..  People did a great job of acting responsibly, social distancing and leaving right after the race was over.  Please do the same.  

The start will be at Old Fernhill Road and Fernhill road.  It is a fast mile.  We will have heats for XC Camp and Non-Camp heats.  Please don't sign up for a camp heat if you didn't attend the Chester County XC Camp.  Campers, please sign up for the heat that coincides with your camp group.  

We are going to run heats of up to 10 people.  A heat will go off every 5:00 to allow for adequate social distancing.  The first heat will be at 7:00AM.  We're going to have a total of 12 heats so we'll limit it to 120 people total.  This is going to be a no frills race.  We're just experimenting with how to safely get racing back.  Please follow the guidelines below to keep everyone safe.
