About This Activity

Dash in the Dark is a cross country relay race run at night under the lights. The race
will be run on a spectator friendly course on a grass surface. A relay team consists of
3 runners who will each run a 3200 meter leg. Join us and kick off the 2016 XC season
in style.

When: Friday, September 9th

Where: Oakfield-Alabama Middle-High School located at 7001 Lewiston Road Oakfield, NY 14125,
6 miles north of Batavia, 45 minutes from Downtown Rochester & Buffalo.

Course: The course is a fast, flat, grassy, 1600 meter loop around the school grounds. Each leg
will run two loops, starting and ending inside the football stadium. The course will be safe and
well lit. We will be using the lights from our football stadium along with rented light towers.

Format: Teams consist of 3 runners. Each school can enter 3 teams (A, B, and C) in the Gold race
(fastest race) and unlimited teams in the Blue race (D, E, F, etc.). Your top runners should run in
the Gold race and cannot run in the Blue race. Any additional runners on your team can compete
in the Blue race by running the first leg to receive a time for the 3200m distance.

Entry Process: $150 per school or $75 for a single team (only Girls or only Boys).
