Athlete Registration — how to register

Roster entry will be handled using Athletic.net. All high school athletes may be entered in the varsity race! You need not specify if athletes will run in varsity/jv/freshman. All athletes are eligible for varsity race without designation. We would like all freshman not running in the varsity race to compete in the freshman race. The JV race will consist of the remaining 10th, 11th, and 12th grade runners not competing in the varsity race.

We will have concessions and t-shirts and sweatshirts available for purchase.

Parking is $5 per car so that your fans are aware.

Specific parking information will be posted before the meet, as it is very important that you understand where you can and cannot park.

Let us know of any concerns you may have. We look forward to seeing you on what we expect will be a pleasant sunny Saturday morning in Kent County.


The address for Gainey is 1661 East Paris Avenue, SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
