Dear PS 107 Track Team Families,
We are so excited to return to our out-of-state racing with our meet at Mahwah on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30TH in New Jersey! This is a beautiful cross country course at the Mahwah High School that winds through woods, crosses a baseball field, has a big hill and is a lot of fun. The kids have been hard at work practicing cross country and running hills so we know they will be ready. For our athletes the course is 1 – 2 miles depending on their age group so this is a considerably shorter than the PTA Fun Run this weekend
The meet itself is from 9:30 – 11:30 am with registration opening at 8:45 am and the course walk at 9 am. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE COURSE WALK as the route can be very confusing.
The bus will leave PS 107 at 7:15 am and we expect to return to PS 107 by 1 pm though it is possible we may be earlier. We have room on the bus for athletes and adults. Ideally, we would like all athletes on the bus going to Mahwah so we can arrive together but if you would like to drive your child there YOU MUST BE AT MAHWAH BY 8:30 am. (Your child does not need to return on the bus if you would like to make other plans)
The cost of the meet is $10 and $25 for the bus so $35 for each athlete. If this present a hardship, there are scholarships available so please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like one or if a parent would like a ride to the meet not on the bus. Parents, if you would like to ride the bus – and we love having you on the bus! – the cost per parent is $10. (If you are driving your child to the meet then you will just pay the meet fee.)
THIS IS AN ALL AGES MEET AND A RAIN OR SHINE EVENT!!
The kids will need to wear their PS 107 PE shirts or Track Team uniform, shorts with sweats over them or running tights under them (or both), PS 107 Track jackets (if they have one:) and SNEAKERS. Please pack your child a lunch, a snack and a water bottle. Right now the weather in Mahwah is going to be in the 40s with possible rain showers in the morning so you need to dress yourself and your child accordingly. Hats and gloves would probably be useful! We will be sitting on the ground when not running so you may want to bring chairs, tarps, etc. In the past there has been a small concession stand but we do not know if they will have one this time.
Here is who we have running so far:
Mahwah 10/30 roster
Lucas VanHagel – not on bus

Please join these great runners – it is going to be a lot of fun!! There is still time to sign up with the wufoo link and the attached permission slip and meet waiver https://ps107.wufoo.com/forms/
