El Dorado Wildcat Invitational 2020

El Dorado , AR

Meet Information

This race will take place at the South Arkansas Regional Airport.

Big school division is at capacity. We still have openings for small schools.

We are making changes this season. We are splitting divisions so that varsity runners can have a more traditional starting line and to ensure that we have a more spacious starting line. The athletes will be sent off in waves based upon classification, but the times will be combined for the big school division and then for the small school division later in the morning. The junior high division will be started in waves based on school. I have put the junior high races in the middle so that schools will have all the races back to back. This is a unique year. I have researched a few different strategies for running meets off and I believe this is the best way to do things this year. 

Varsity Boys (4A-6A) - 8:00 (4A boys will start @ 8:00, 5A @ 8:01, 6A @ 8:02)

Varsity Girls (4A-6A) - 8:40 (4A girls will start @ 8:40, 5A @ 8:41, 6A @ 8:42)

Junior Boys (all classes) - 9:15

Junior Girls (all classes) - 9:35

Varsity Boys (1A-3A) - 10:00 (1A @ 10:00, 2A @ 10:01, 3A @ 10:02)

Varsity Girls (1A-3A) - 10:40 (1A @ 10:40, 2A @ 10:41, 3A @ 10:42) 

This is the intended schedule. I have built in time to accommodate the wave starts. However, we will adapt to a rolling schedule if we finish a race ahead of the intended start time of the following race. 

Athletes will be required to keep their masks on unless warming up or competing. Please fill out the attached COVID screening form and bring it with you to the meet. You will turn it in at the check in table. 

There will be no awards ceremony. Plaques and medals can be picked up from the check in tent. 

Price: $60 per team, $200 if entered into all four divisions. $15 per athlete. Checks are made out to El Dorado Cross Country.

Awards: We will go ten deep for individual awards in each varsity division. We will go 20 deep in junior high since those races are combined classifications. For team awards, each race will have a champion and runner up plaque. 

There will be t-shirts available for purchase at the meet. They will be $15. You can pay with cash or check. The check would need to be made out to McAdams drafting and design.
