Meet with Oak Park and Morton at Concordia


Be at Fenwick at 3:00.  Bus leaves promptly at 3:10.

It will be cold.  Dress appropriately.  Compression shirt, tights, extra sweat top, hats, and gloves are strongly recommended.  Although you think you won’t need them at 4:00, by 6:00 you’ll be glad you have them.  

If you are a sprinter, you’ll need to warm up completely before each event and cool down after competing.  That means 10 minutes of light jogging and an abbreviated version of dynamic flexibility/form running.  Leave sweats on until the last possible moment.  Have a light sweat going when you show up for the start.  Get sweats back on and start jogging immediately after your event or jump/throw.

Bring fluids and drink frequently.  It’s very easy to dehydrate when it’s cold.  You probably won’t sense that you are thirsty, but drink anyway.  If you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated.

Lineups are posted.
