Disclaimer as of 7/26/2020: Minnesota Department of Health has not given guidelines for how competitions can properly be handled. We do know that we are allowed to have dual competitions (2 team races) but the processes for handling the start of the race and the finish line have not been specified. We expect to have guidance on these items the week of Aug 4th when the Minnesota State High School League releases information. We do know our competitions will be much different. We may be forced to limit race sizes to under 35 athletes and hold multiple races on our race nights.
It is our intention to hold a season. We will follow the guidance of the Minnesota State Department of Health which means that our season could end early and the guidelines for practices and competitions could change at any moment.
We will have fun, We will stay safe, We will compete (with or without other schools) and Most Importantly; We will learn about distance running.
