Fort Steilacoom Time Schedule
The Fort Steilacoom Invite features a wide variety of races, and coaches may put their athletes into the race that is most beneficial for their athlete or team. There are two important things to remember when entering your team. In most cases, the girls race will start 5 minutes after the boys. That allows us to keep the meet finishing at a reasonable time, and the ability to have variety of races of races so athletes can run in the race that is most beneficial for them. In order to make it work, it is important to make sure that coaches do not enter any athlete who is likely to run over 30 minutes except in the two designated races. These are the Girls JV race at 11:20 and the boys JV race at then end of the meet. Any athlete who is approaching the final 200 meters may be temporarily delayed to allow the next race to pass.
