All comped athletes must pre-register. Post race refreshments. Note: The Pacific Association XC Championships will also serve as the West Regional Championship.

We strongly suggest you set up your team meeting area in the South Bleachers of the Polo Fields.  You can erect pop-up canopies, fly your team flag.  Be good collegiate types and clean up afterwards.  Portapotties are South of the bleachers through the South Tunnel at the West end of the bleachers, please use the portapots before using the existing building toilets, which are subject to flooding if used too heavily (that happened last time, not good). At this location you are about 200 yards East from the finish and 600 yards West from the start.
