22nd Annual North Monterey County Earlybird Cross Country Invitational

ONE WEEK LATER THAN NORMAL!

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th, 2017

TORO PARK, SALINAS

 

We’re back!! Come join us for our 22nd annual presentation of the “not so early” Earlybird Invitational on Saturday, September 16th at Toro Park in Salinas! The 2017 Earlybird returns after a year off due to park closures during the Soberanes Fire and it will be held one week later than our traditional date. The only fire we will have this year will come from the feet of our harriers! The Toro Park course is superb for cross country. It features a very competitive 3 mile course with flat & hilly dirt paths at the site of multiple CCS and League Championships. Over 75 teams are expected to kick off their 2017 seasons at Earlybird.

Visit our meet website http://nmcxc.tripod.com for meet information, past meet coverage, results, records, course maps, driving directions, videos, and pictures! And, once again, Earlybird registration will be done online at http://www.athletic.net.  Please make sure you register your athletes by Tuesday, September 12th, 2017 by 8 PM!

Please do not park by the on-ramps outside the park gates, you will be ticketed by Highway Patrol! School buses only are allowed in the first parking lot on the right. All other vehicles need to park past that first lot.
