The Coastal Running League (Striders) Championship

Wednesday, June 8th- The Coastal Running League (Striders) Championship meet will be held today at 4:00 at Falmouth Community Park off of Winn Road. The races are held at the last set of fields in the park. (Directions below - please read parking information first!!!)

Safety - Obviously this is of the most importance. Please remind all folks driving in the park that the park speed is 15 MPH.

My suggestion is for you to arrive earlier so speeding due to tardiness is not an issue. With people parking and then walking to the meet location,

we want to make certain that everyone can get there safely.



Carpooling - It is strongly encouraged that people carpool. Parking is limited.



Parking - We will have parking attendants to help with parking within the park. Please park where they tell you to.

We have a parking plan in place and it will only work with everyone's cooperation. There will be shuttles to get from one end of the park to the other.

So do not be discouraged about where you have to park, we will have shuttles every 5 minutes.

Please encourage those people with physical disabilities or other issues to arrive at the park early to get parking nearest the field.

I will have several parking spaces for those with the appropriate handicapped placard.
