You will also have to sign a liability release for this event in addition to the "one per season" normal BAOC COOL release.

Competitive Categories

The following courses will be used for the BAOC COOL classes:

Elementary boys and girls – White/Yellow
Middle School boys and girls – White/Yellow
JV boys and girls – Short Sprint
Varsity boys and girls – Long Sprint

The Long Sprint involves two courses, the Long 1 and the Long 2, run at separate times as noted in the Schedule above. Both courses are required for the Varsity class.


If you normally run JV and are thinking about running Varsity, this may be a good time to try it, as the navigation in an urban setting is generally easier than in the wilderness.
