After what feels like a long two weeks, the Tartans will swing back into action this Saturday in the first ever Top Speed Running XC Classic at Bonelli Park in San Dimas. Amazingly for a new event, the meet has drawn a very strong field of 24 schools, including Baseline league rivals Etiwanda, Rancho Cucamonga, and Upland, along with top-ranked Claremont, and former Sierra League rivals Damien and Chino.
The first race it at 8:00 am, and the races run every half hour after. We’ll race over a newly created course that is two 1.5 mile loops almost entirely on grass or dirt, and one that allows one to see most of the course from south hillside of the area we meet to train at. The park opens at 6:30, and there’s an entry fee of $10 per car. There’s further information (and an updated course map) on our 2010 Annotated Schedule, and you can (and should) download this week’s Team Sheet, with lineups, race times, and the runner’s itinerary here: TS-TopSpeed-Bonelli-10 (Corrected).pdf
And… Lauren Justus’ parents (George and Wendy) will be hosting this week’s spaghetti dinner immediately after Friday’s training session. They live at 1020 Stonehedge Drive in Glendora.
