Team Medals to each member of the winning team in each division.
The Parent-Child Relay will be held on 10/21/2017 following the regular meet and will have Separate Awards. The Fee is $5.00 per athlete / per team.
At the Championship we will be awarding each member of the winning team in each division a customized championship medal. Each team in a particular age division must submit a team declaration form, accompanied by a $5.00 refundable registration fee, indicating their intention to compete as a team in the championship no later than 10/7//2017 . The Championship Team Declaration Form may be downloaded here or picked up at the registration table at meets #4. The registration fee will be returned on Championship day after the team competes. Team declaration forms will not be returned. Unverified Athletes will not be allowed to compete in the Championship. Since we believe that Cross Country is primarily a team sport in order to encourage team participation the 8 & Under Girls, 8 & Under Boys, Open Men and Open Women Divisions will only require 3 eligible athletes to compete as a team in the Championship. All other divisions will require 4 eligible athletes to compete as a team in the championship.

Our online entry system is the preferred method of entry and payment. We will, however, still accept rosters sent via E-mail or fax. For those needing a paper form you can download a Team Roster form or an Unattached Roster form here which you will need to duplicate. Please complete a separate roster for each age group and sex. For example, 8 & Under Boys on one sheet, 8 & Under Girls on a separate sheet etc.
Roster sheets should be mailed to Rhonda Baker P.O. Box 631 Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462 or e-mailed to email@example.com and must arrive on or before the Thursday prior to Meet 1 or they will be collected at the meet and will be considered a Day of the Meet registration ( $10.00 per athlete).
Our meets are scheduled around the annual Breast Cancer event which traditionally takes place on the first week in October and may cause the rescheduling of the meet planned for that week. Please monitor the schedule

The Parking spaces near the finish line and the Registration area are RESERVED FOR MEET PERSONNEL ONLY!!!.
It is absolutely essential that the registration and finish line personnel have access to their vehicles. The finish line personnel are responsible for putting up and taking down the course markings (flags, poles etc). These items are very heavy and it is difficult to carry them long distances. Registration personnel are responsible for posting results and resolving any and all problems that may arise. In the past, emergencies have occurred that required paramedics to be called to the meet for relatively minor medical issues. We, as the meet administrators, could not handle them immediately ourselves because our vehicles were not in close proximity to the registration area. Since then, we have reserved the three parking spaces between the finish line posts and the park bench at the far end of the finish line for meet administration. These spots are near to the area where registration is usually set up. Other venicles parked in these spots will be asked to move. People who refuse to move will not be permitted to participate in the meet.
