Madison, MS

Dear Coaches,
Thank you for coming to our 2016 MRA Patriot Relays on Wednesday, April 13th. We hope for this to be a great meet for all involved. This year we are using Woody Barnett, Pirate Timing for timing and scoring the meet. When registering your athletes on MileSplit MS, be sure to give an accurate seed time/distance. All races will be seeded by their performance on MileSplit or their coachs entry.

Make sure that you have a MileSplit account set up as soon as possible if you dont already have one. We are also requiring a $30 dollar fee per team at this meet. For instance; 4 teams = $120, 2 Junior High teams = $60 and so forth. This payment needs to be paid in full by the day of the meet.

WE NEED ONE COACH PER SCHOOL FOR FIELD EVENTS.

Here are a few guidelines for the meet:
Athletes are the only ones that will be allowed to bring water coolers, etc. Please spread the word that parents WILL NOT be allowed to bring coolers into the complex. Our concession stand will have water, PowerAde, nutri-grain bars, fruit, hamburgers, Chic-fil-A, Hungry Howies Pizza, etc.

The 9:00 a.m. meeting is crucial for running changes. This meeting will be under the white tent in the infield. YOU CAN ENTER 2 IN ALL EVENTS. They both can score. No unattached competitors EXCEPT in non-lane races. Scratches for field events will be made AT the field event. Please note that we will run the varsity girls and junior high boys 3200m run during the field events.

Im sure Im leaving something out so if you think of anything feel free to contact us. Were looking forward to having all of you for our 2016 Patriot Relays.
