The Alligator Lake Invitational will consist of a High School, Middle School, Elementary and Open 5k Run. The High school 5k will have A boys and A girls Varsity Invite & Open, as well as a JV race Varsity races are allowed to run 10 athletes. The middle school will have a boys and girls 3k race and will be a qualifier for the middle school state meet. We will have a combined elementary run as well as the combined community 5k run. If we do not have 30 Varsity teams then we will condense the Invite & Open into one event and change the time schedule. If this happens we will change the time schedule on flrunners.com and halfmiletiming.com. Coaches please let your parents know that there are NO PETS allowed in the park. Any dogs brought into the park will have to remain in a vehicle.

This meet will be sanctioned for Georgia and any other states that will be attending. If any other states are attending please let me know so we can submit the sanctions.
