CTC Elementary Cross Country Series Schedule Announced
By Jennifer Morrison
Posted: Monday, August 23, 2010
My name is Jennifer Morrison and I have been given the opportunity to coordinate the events for this year's Elementary Cross Country Series and I am happy to announce the 2010 Race Schedule! 

September 9th
September 23rd
September 30th
October 7th
October 14th [Rain Date-if needed]

Location:  Each event will be held at the Riverpark on Amnicola Highway.  Since the planning for this event has been so delayed this year, I have elected to have these races a bit later in order to give you and your children more time to prepare.  This was also done in consideration for the heat we are experiencing. 
Start Times: We will start the boys first and the girls will follow 1-2 minutes after.
3rd grade @ 4:15
4th grade @ 4:30
5th grade @ 4:45. .
Please pass along to the parents and others who will attend these events.
The races will be held at the maintenance field @ the Riverpark.   There will be plenty of parking in the lot beside the field, overflow parking (will hold 700 cars), and another lot past the ranger station.  The rangers will be enforcing parking violations, so I have been asked to inform you in advance of the following pieces of information:
DO NOT park on the street or along the curb.
DO NOT park on the grass.
We would like to continue using this facility in the years to come, so please take care to follow these rules.
Registration Form/Waiver:  In the next few days, I will be sending out the registration/waiver form to be filled out by the parents of each of your participating children.  This form is required for the children to run in the race.   I will also have some blanks on hand on race day just in case.   Also, please collect $1.00 for each child.

Chickamauga Battlefield Junior Marathon:  In addition to the Cross Country Series, I am also coordinating this event.  Please pass along the attached application to anyone you know that might be interested in having their child run this race.  This application may also be found at   It's going to be a great time!

I know you may have questions.  Please feel free to contact me at any time and I will do my best to get the right answer for you.  If I don't answer my phone, please leave a message and I will get back to you later that day or you can send me an email which might get a quicker response.   Also, feel free to pass this information along to any coaches you may be in contact with.  Ask them to send me an email with their contact information so I can keep up with it for next year.
If you have ANY contact information for coaches at other schools, please send me a quick email with their information and I'll get the details to them. 
Thank you for your patience while I get this event off the ground!  I am very excited about this opportunity and can't wait to meet each of you and all of the kids!
