COACHES AND FANS PLEASE NOTE

This is a new course this year.  Due to the construction of the New Lewiston High School we have created a new course.  Much of the old course was salvaged, but the start/finish area will be to the NORTH of the main loop.  The main loop is now 2800 meters long.  So for a 5K race all racers will run a "short" loop of 1800 meters, then one large loop (2800 meters) and our start/finish distance adds up to 400 meters to total 5000.   I am going to leave the current course maps up so you can get a general idea of the layout, but this is NOT THE COURSE to be used in 2018.

You can see a current map at mapmyrun.  Here is a link to this specific course.  On right side is link to do a 3D flyover so you can see how course runs.  You may need to create account to view in this manner.

COURSE MAP

We have invested some significant money this spring to make these changes and adjustments, including planting new grass in all of the new areas, there are posts on the inside and outside of the running path the entire way that are 50' apart or less (on corners). 

Other than the brief description above, we will have course maps soon and hope to have some interactive ones so that you can see how it will go.   There are a couple of "hairpin" turns in the race, but they are far enough into it that we don't think there are any concerns.  Even less so at the state meet which typically has had smaller fields that what we see at the invite.  The course is 100% dirt or grass.  It can be dusty during dry time, depending on how well our grass/ground cover has come in.  There is very little shade on the course and teams are encouraged to bring tents to avoid the sun/rain.  There should be ample area for placement of these along the start/finish area and behind the start line.

Parking will likely be the biggest issue until the new school is built (not by this fall).  For the state meet - spectators will be required to park at the fairgrounds ($5 parking fee) and we will have a shuttle service circling to and from the course.  There will be a separate designated team parking area near the course.  The fairgrounds are close enough to walk, but we will have the shuttles running for those that want to ride.  For the invite, P1FCU has been gracious enough in the past to allow people to park in their lot, but due to the changes in the course, they are not as close as they used to be, but can still be a very viable parking area.  If the property conditions allow, we may end up parking there on the property, but that won't be known until we get closer to invite day.

If you are a middle school coach, that race will now be 3200 meters (Start+Finish+1 main loop).

Inland Empire Classic Cross Country
October 6, 2018 LCSC Cross Country Course Lewiston Orchards

Use 1234 Warner AVE, Lewiston for GPS. There is no true address for the course, but this is as close as we can get.  Use 1001 Park AVE for PIFCU (see below).

Parking available on Park Ave and in the P1FCU Lot (do not block drive thru).  This is only for the invite.  ALL PARKING FOR STATE MEET is at the Nez Perce County Fairgrounds ($5 parking fee).  Currently, use 1301 Burrell AVE for entrance for parking.  Shuttles will be routing from the NORTH end of this parking lot.  You will be entering from the SOUTH end.

CURRENT ANTICIPATED RACES FOR 2018

Due to this being the site for the 2018 state championships, we expect more schools that may want to participate in our high school invitational.  With this in mind we are tentatively planning on the following races.  Should number expand beyond what we think we can manage per race we will add, or if the numbers don't justify it, we will reduce races.  Of note - we are very sensative to the teams that have been loyally coming to our race since its inception and will give them the opportunity to pick which race they what to be in.  In some cases, if numbers dictate it, this may bump a team into a different race.  We hope that this philosophy is understandable and acceptable.  We know you have many options for races and are flattered that you would consider compete at our event.
