Lagoon Valley Cross Country Invitational

We encourage every athlete to race whenever given the opportunity. First, racing together is the best way we can contribute to each other and second the only way to gain confidence and improve is to race often. After all, we are the Delta Hawks Youth RACING Team!

The most important thing about this meet is to know you need to arrive early. There is only one way in to Lagoon Valley Regional Park and it can back up on that road a long ways. Do not stress yourself or your athlete out by arriving late. Directions and parking below.
Meet at Team Tent: 7:00am
Warmup Starts: 7:10am (boys), 7:20 (girls)
Race Starts: 8:00am (boys), 8:15 (girls)
We suggest arriving to Lagoon Valley Regional Park by 6:40am to give yourself time to park and find the team tent.
PARKING & DIRECTIONS - $5.00 PARKING FEE
Westbound I-80 to Lagoon Valley Rd exit. Turn left at the top of the off ramp. Proceed approximately ½ mile to the service entrance. Turn left and follow signs to the parking area.
All Hawks will race 1.5 miles on a relatively flat course that is spectator friendly. When you arrive at the tent one or more of the coaches will take your kids on a warmup and guide them through the morning. Honestly, you won't see a ton of them until after the race. We will go over these details at practice on Friday so that they are fresh in everyones mind.
We are often asked what an athlete should eat on race morning. To be there by 6:40am you are going to leave the house by around 6:00am, which means your kids will be up before 6:00am. Which is great. They can have a decent breakfast at that point or have something healthy but simple on the car ride. Bring along water and a simple snack. By 6:45am, you will shouldn't be eating anything else.
