Meets Still On - State XC Championship Time Change

MPA Press Relase

Over the past two days we have received numerous inquiries about the MPA State Cross County Meet at Troy Howard Middle School in Belfast. We have been monitoring the weather closely and just communicated with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine. We are aware that the conditions are no going to be ideal, but the NWA prediction was that the worst weather would be about 2:00pm to 8:00pm in the Belfast area for Saturday. From 10:00am to 2:00pm there is a chance of 1/10" of rain and cold temperatures. The feeling of many coaches is that they would run in these conditions and there is a gym neat the course for the athletes and spectators to warm up in. In looking at the long-term forecast, next Saturday is not guaranteed to be a lot better. In weighing all of our options the Cross County Committee has decided to start the race an hour early and to condense the schedule to a race every 35 minutes to try to beat the worst of the weather. The revised schedule for Saturday, October 27, 2018 is a follows.

A- Boys 10:00am ; Girls 10:35am

B- Boys 11:10am ; Girls 11:45am

C- Boys 12:20pm; Girls 12:55pm
