Ed Sias Invitational, Hidden Valley Park, Martinez, CA. …a short 2 mile course with a few hills and minor focus on team results/major focus on individual performance …for those of you who have not attended this event before, this is a very relaxed, fun/cool event with loud music and a dance contest right after the last race… about 40 schools competing with 11 different races, including several Frosh/Soph and JV races, giving lots of kids an opportunity to compete within their grade/fitness level.Coaches will bring pop up tents, athletes should bring water bottles and food to eat for the morning. They have a nicely stocked snack bar – so you might want to bring some money if you intend to buy food.
