Thank you for coming out in support of your favorite Cross Country athlete attending Coginchaug's 32nd running of "Going to the Sun" Cross Country Meet. There are some very important things to know about this year's meet.
Please DO NOT arrive prior to 2:15pm. Both our high school and middle school share a campus and our buses will need to vacate the properties before allowing other buses onto our campus.
The main school entrance - Pickett Lane accessed off Main Street (Rt 17) will be closed so you will need to use the school's north entrance (see attached map), which is off of Maiden Lane. (Maiden Lane is directly off Main Street (Rt 17) just north of the intersection of Main Street & Rt 68). Travel east on Maiden Lane until you see the blue school sign on the right which approximately ¼ mile on your right. This is Pickett Lane. Stay on this road as it makes a turn to the right.
Buses: Parking attendants will direct buses to the bus parking lot and will assist spectators to a safe parking area. Buses will proceed past the tennis courts to park on the gravel area on the right. You will be met by parking attendants.
Spectators: Upon entering via the North entrance, parking attendants will direct spectators to the bus parking lot and will direct spectators to designated parking areas.
Departing: The main school road to Route 17/Main Street will be open by the time you leave.
The official start time for GJV is 3:45pm, but we will start sooner if all schools are present and ready to go.
GJV 3:45pm (promptly)
BJV at 4:15pm
GV at 4:45pm
BV at 5:15pm
Awards ASAP afterwards.
Please Note: Due to many districts recently instituting new activity guidelines concerning ending times for athletic events, we will begin all races promptly at their scheduled times. Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold up race start times for competitors.
Lastly, there will be a central location selling bottled water, sports drinks, snacks, and select apparel.
