We are extending an invitation for your school to be a part of the 16th annual Chick-fil-A Invitational on September 10, 2016. The meet site is the Wood County 4-H Camp on Butcher Bend Road in Mineral Wells, West Virginia. (See directions and details on next page).
The course is run entirely on grass and is a combination of gently rolling hills and flat areas, which should provide for very good times. The high school races will be 5,000 meters, the middle school races will be 3,000 meters, and the elementary races will be 400-800 meters. There will be an admission fee for spectators. Change facilities and restrooms will be on site at the campgrounds. There will be a large area for school tents and parking for at least 5,000 cars. In the event of inclement weather, various buildings are available for cover for participants as well as spectators. You can preorder T-shirts by visiting www.runWV.com/shirt.pdf. Exclusive Chick-fil-A Invitational T-shirts will be on sale day of the race. Hot and cold concessions will be available. The awards ceremony will be on site, next to the start/finish area.
