READ: Schedule Changes For Maryland Track & Trail Due To Heat

From meet director Bruce Kline: As you are well aware, we are looking at a very hot day on Saturday for the Track and Trail Invitational.  The large school morning races should not be affected too much but we are looking to make a few changes.  There will be water stations at the 1 mile and 2 mile locations as well as at the finish.  Please encourage your athletes to be well hydrated prior to running. 

Small school races will start 1 hour earlier.  We are also compressing race times a little.  Please see schedule below.  Our attempt is to get out of the hottest part of the day.  Runners still on the course after the closing race time will be allowed to finish but will not receive an official time.  Please make arrangements with your transportation to adjust your arrival time.  If this is a problem, please let me know as soon as possible.

Tentative Schedule of events:  Buses should plan to arrive at the Fair Hill Race Track for large school races from 7:15 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. and small school races from 10:45 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  The race schedule will be as follows:
