Linfield Christian School
31950 Pauba Road
Temecula, CA 92592
This is our first time racing at Linfield, the race will be hosted by Chaparral High School. 
We will meet in the front of the school at 2:30pm. They have asked parents and athletes not to arrive untili 3:30pm so that Linfield students will have time to get out of the parking lot without traffic. Here is the tentative race schedule: 

4:30- JV boys 
4:55- Varsity girls 
5:20- Varsity boys 
5:45- JV girls

The course is an all-dirt, 1 mile loop which follows a wide, graded path. The loop will be run 3 times, with the finish on the road behind the high school building. I tried to add a picture of the map and it didn't work. I will email all a copy tonight. (10/12)
There will be a student trainer/ice available for injuries/emergencies, and other items will be for sale. Bathroom facilities will are available in the Linfield gym (please do not use the school buildings!) Please make sure to stay in the areas designated for the runners and pick up ALL your trash! Coach Gilliland will have a trash bag in case trash cans are overflowing! (Give all your recyclables to Coach G also!) 

Please email me if you have any questions! Get ready to race and have some fun!

We are going to be doing another VERY simple fundraiser. Here is what we have to do:

There is a 5k run-walk race in Temecula at Lake Skinner on Sunday October 30th. All we have to do is get people to sign up and race. Each registration form turned in with MVHS Cross Country labelled at the bottom (including waiver) will give us part of the proceeds! The more people we get signed up, the more money we make.

Only catch, they have to sign up by printing out the form, and NOT online. There is no way to verify it is from MVHS if they register online. SO, Coach Hilton will print out some forms, I will email them to the entire team, and if you want to print MORE copies that helps the team even more! It costs $30 per person to register. They can pay the day of or pay with cash or check (in a envelope stapled to their registration and waiver form) and bring it to Coach Gilliland.

We are VERY lucky to have this opportunity. A former MVHS Cross Country runner, Anthony Flores, is organizing the race and contacted the coaches to help give back to MVHS Cross Country!!

REMEMBER: It is against CIF rules for you to race in this competition because it cross country season, however ALLLLLLLLLLLL of your friends and family can run and YOU can cheer them on! (Coach G might race!)
