8/27/16 – Jamie Block Invite (WBHS) – There are no formal registrations nor awards at this meet. But around 12:30 after all of the high school races, the meet will run a 1.25 mile OPEN run on the same CC Course for anyone interested.
9/3/16 – Rebel Invite (UW-Parkside – Kenosha) – This is also an “OPEN” Race format on the CC course after the meet that the WBW High School teams attend. Some years they have taken race-day “waivers”, and others they’ve just let kids & adults run. This again is not an official SRC event, but is an option for anyone wanting a race-like feel if they’re attending the meet anyways (older sibbling) or don’t mind the long drive.
9/17/16 – Waukesha CC Festival (Minooka Park – Waukesha) – This will be our first race with “chip timing” and official “team results”! The SRC will be covering the Entry Fees for all members wishing to run this event, and will make entries in PT Timing for those interested. Some years they’ve run MS Boys and Girls separate at 11:30 (B) and 12:00 (G), and other times they’ve run them combined. There are also High School Races throughout the AM, so come early to watch the older Spartans! MS Course Map (Distance is approximately 1.7 miles)
9/22/16 – Kewaskum Invitiational (Kewaskum Middle School) – We are ON for this meet now. It is a HS and Middle School Race, but WBW HS will no longer be attending this meet. But I have entered all of our SRC kids and found “Meet Information” below:
9/29/16 Thu – Slinger Owl Invite (Homestead Hollow Park, Freistadt Rd Germantown) This is a 1.5 m MS Race with BOYS at 3:55 and GIRLS at 4:00. HS races follow, but MS kids do not need to stay for these. Ribbons to Top 100 MS kids. SRC Covers cost of entry.
10/5/16 Wedn – KML Grade School Meet (KML HS, Jackson) – Nice and close, with lots of Team and Individual Awards available. SRC covers the cost of entry. We will have to decide which of our kids run “open” and which run in the MS race. This is a bit different than they’ve done in the past.

10/14/16 Fri – CC Grade School Challenge (Greenfield Park, Wisc Luth College Host) – 1.5 mile. This race allows us to run a maximum of 8 entries for Girls and 8 entries for Boys. Since these 8 must also have “qualifying races”, we will seek to enter the 8 fastest runners from SRC who can attend the meet. A “qualifier” is defined as having finished in the Top 40% of a 7th/8th Gr Race in 2015 – or a younger runner having a time that would have been Top 40% in the 7th/8th division), We’re confident we will have at least 8 who qualify from our club, so it will be a matter of confirming who can race that night. There is a $10 entry fee, but it comes with a T-shirt. Please do not enter yourself online on their website. I will make a batch entry for the Team and collect $10 from each on or before Meet Day. 2016 Meet Info
