Rest Room Facilities
There were problems with the restrooms a few years ago that were blamed on the runners.
These included tearing the bathroom fixture from the wall and plugging up one of the
toilets with a school uniform. The park has asked us to stay away from the restrooms in
the main recreation center near Kiley Bl and to use the restrooms near the start; the
swimming pool and tennis court restrooms. Please remind the runners to stay away from the
rec. center and please keep an eye on your team so that they do not damage the facilities.
Also, when you leave the park, please make sure all liter in your team area is picked up.
Please park on the side of the park opposite Kiley Bl. This is per the request of the Police
Department and the park manager. Parking the school busses in the main parking lot is very
disruptive to the normal use of the park. The designated parking area is next to the softball
field on which the race will start. From Benton St, turn on White Dr towards the Library and
turn right at the next street into the parking lot. From Homestead, turn into the Library
Parking lot and follow down to the softball fields or take the street after the
Library and proceed to the first or second left turn for the parking lot.
This year, the runners will receive sticks with their placement and as they exit the chute, their
place will be recorded on their team forms (see attached form).
Please tell your runners to avoid the large grass area by Kiley Bl until after 3 PM, as the
elementary school located there is in session until 3 PM. If your runners walk the course,
please have them avoid that area by cutting the course at the end of the rec. center parking lot.
This meet has been sanctioned by CCS.
