Dear Coaches and Athletic Directors:

This letter is to formally invite you to the 13th Annual Hopewell Junior Cross Country Invitational, to be held on Monday, September 28th, 2020 at Hopewell Junior High School.  This year we are separating our races into age groups.  This should allow a better balance in the number of race participants.  Also, we are moving the race time back to allow more teams to participate.

Races:  We will have 4 races that are chip timed

Girls 7th Grade - 4:45 pm *please note a later time (unlimited runners)

Boys 7th Grade – 5:15 pm (unlimited runners)

Girls 8th Grade – 5:45 pm (unlimited runners)

Boys 8th Grade – 6:15 pm (unlimited runners)

*Note – times are approximate as we will start each race at the conclusion of the race before.

*You may enter unlimited participants in each race.  The only time a 7th grader should run “up” in the 8th grade race is to complete a five person team, because your school doesn’t have five 8th graders.

Registration and scoring will be with GHG timing, they will use MileSplit for Registration; please inform your parents so they can follow the results.


Awards presented immediately following races on the podium

*Team Championship, Runner Up, and 3rd Place Award for each race

*Individual Medals for places 1- 15 in each race

*Participation ribbons available at awards tent

 We are going to try to open the fencing to allow parents easier access to the grandstands. We ask that parents, siblings and other athletes do not enter the football field / finish area.
