*Time Schedule subject to change depending on weather conditions (ie heat related issues) so we can get the full meet in. If rain causes parking issues like in 2017, the contingency plan will be similar in which we will have buses transporting runners and spectators who do not come on a bus from Grant County High School. Hopefully we will be able to secure a couple more buses, but please notify your athletes & parents to plan to arrive at a minimum two plus hours before their scheduled event. We would suggest that you transport your team via school van or bus to secure on site parking.

**Awards are presented on the stage outside the cafeteria of the Sherman Elementary School. If conditions should dictate, we will move inside the cafeteria. The top 10 individuals and team awards in varsity races will be given out at the awards ceremony. All other varsity awards will be handed out in the finish chute. Individual awards in the JV, Middle School, and Elementary Races will be given out in the finish chute. The top 3 individuals and all team awards for JV, MS, and Elementry events will be presented at the awards ceremony.

Additional info:

* Admission $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students. Children not yet in school are free! All proceeds benefit the Grant County Cross Country Invitational and its participants.

We hope you will join us for one of the premiere meets in the state on our challenging, yet fun, course located on the campus of Sherman Elementary School, home of Grant County Cross Country. The site has served as the host of the 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2018 Class A Region 3, Class AA Region 4, and Class AAA Region 5 Cross Country Championships. The courses will remain the same as last year. As always, we look forward to seeing you at the races and best of luck to your school and teams during the upcoming season!
