  • DON’T come to event site 5-10 minutes before the start of your race and expect to pick up your number immediately; don’t forget that you would also have to use safety pins to affix the bib of your jersey.
  • DON’T be a “poacher” and take with you golf balls from the driving range and adjacent areas; golf balls are property of the Driving Range.
  • DON’T crowd, come near, or rush to provide cover for your child while in the finishing chute; It only takes several minutes for Organizers to process and record the athletes’ finishing order. Any interference in the chute area will slow them down and also leads to errors if non-participants are walking by, chatting, taking pictures, dropping off clothes, or otherwise distracting the organizers or participants.
  • DON’T park on Ridge Road.
  • DON’T drop off participants near the temporary crosswalk; park first at the Marine Institute west side parking lot.
  • DO stay behind the ropes/fencing, and stay away from the competition areas at all times, including finishing chute.
  • Teachers/Team leaders - DO identify yourself to your students wearing distinct clothing and colour; DO advise your students of your location during the meet.
  • Registering on-site? DO come earlier to fill out the registration form, allow line-up time, time to affix race number, and get your child to the start line; bring exact change - $11 non-affiliated schools.
