We are very excited to announce that we have nearly 1500 student athletes and over 50 high schools competing at this year's version of the Dublin Distance Fiesta! This is up from our previous records of 1100 and 43, respectively. Therefore, we will be having 95 total heats (up from our previous record of 68) which means two and a half more hours of fun than previously planned! We will now be starting at 10:35 AM and still be concluding at 9:00 PM. The attached event schedule and more information can be found throughout the week at http://www.dublincrosscountry.com/Dublin_Distance_Fiesta/Dublin_Distance_Fiesta.html
A few of you have asked me about the fast heat of the boys 3200 as to how I was going to cap it. The top 22 entrants I received made it into the field (everyone who was sub-9:47 - I had to cap it somewhere). The 22 that have been entered I did my homework on (mark verification and talking with coaches). There were a few questionable entries and I have talked with and notified those coaches already and have changed their entry times to reflect where they should be properly placed. When the heat sheets are posted tomorrow night, I am asking that if you have someone in that race and KNOW they will not be doing it, please let me know ASAP so I can slide some of the other deserving student athletes into this race.
