button - officialT

We are limiting our meet to 14 teams this year due to having only one girls race and one boys race. We will have middle school races after the high school races and we cannot push those any later in the morning. 

Please contact Coach Rae Ann Darling Reed to confirm your spot in the meet. Once you are on the list below you will be emailed the password to enter so you can print your invoice from the entries page. We must limit this meet to the first 14 schools who send in their payments. If payment is not received by August 17, 2017 then that team will be removed and a school from the waiting list will be offered that spot.

There are no refunds if meet is postponed or cancelled due to weather since meet expenses will already be paid for in advance. Thank you.

Manatee High School XC, Attn: Rae Ann Darling Reed, 902 33rd St Ct W, Bradenton, FL 34205

*** PLEASE NOTE: The bridge to get from the amphitheater/finish area to the starting line is narrow and will be shut down to all athletes and spectators to allow the previous race’s runners to finish without anyone in their way. The bridge is only wide enough for two people. Please inform your athletes, coaches, parents, and spectators that they must clear the bridge by the times indicated above if they do wish to watch the start of the next race. Our volunteers will be instructed to NOT allow anyone over the bridge if they will potentially interfere with the finishing runners so please get your teams to the start area early. They will be able to warm up on the soccer fields and use the larger, nicer restrooms by the soccer fields as well. There will be middle school races taking place after the high school races. ***


Bus parking: Colonial Baptist Church, 2616 51st St W, Bradenton, FL 34209 or in the main entrance at GT Bray Park at 51st St W & 33rd Ave Dr W. There will be no bus parking or drop offs or turning around at the 51st Street Park (dog park, amphitheater, & finish area) entrance.

Car parking: main GT Bray Park parking lots near soccer fields and restrooms. Intersection of 33rd Ave Dr W and 51st St W.

Team tent area is in the grass behind the amphitheater or in the pavilions. Teams may NOT set up in the amphitheater, amphitheater seating area, or on the soccer fields.
