for the first two meets only. This
system is strictly optional. The normal registration
system (where you pay for each meet individually) will still be in operation
- The up-front discounted fee allows an athlete to compete in every developmental meet for a reduced fee, which must be paid up-front, at one time. The athlete is automatically registered for each meet. They simply report directly to the starting line (no more waiting in a registration line).
- If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity please come prepared with your one time payment of $25.00 on Sept. 5th or $20.00 on Sept. 12th.
· There will be a fee of $1.00 to replace lost numbers. You must purchase a replacement number if your assigned number is lost, misplaced or forgotten. Only Phila. Express issued numbers will be permitted.
To qualify for the Championship athletes must pay and run in any four (4) of the (6) developmental meets (within their age group) either as a member of a team or as an unattached athlete. They cannot use a combination of both.

Take Route 76
Parking near the finish line or the Registration area is RESERVED.
It is absolutely essential that the registration and finish line personnel have access to their cars. The finish line personnel are responsible for putting up and taking down the course markings (flags, poles etc). These items are very heavy and it is difficult to carry those long distances. Registration personnel are responsible for posting results and resolving any and all problems. In the past, incidents have occurred where the paramedics had to be called for an athlete, another needed minor medical attention. I, as the meet director, could not respond immediately because my car was not in close proximity to the registration area. Therefore, I am reserving two parking spaces for the meet administrators. Please do not park beside the goal posts or by the park bench at the far end of the finish line where the registration area is usually set up.
