Dear Coach,July2023

The planning for the 41TH  Annual Burnt Hills Cross Country Invitational on October 14, 2023is well underway. We hope we are included in your plans again this year and you can be assured that we will do everything we can to ensure a great day of racing. This year, the first race of the day will be the Freshman Girls'race, which will be starting at  at 9:00 am.

We will award Large Medals for the first 30 finishers and Small Medals for the next 45 in each and every race. We will also continue to award a Champion's shirt to the winner of each race, along with a Team Champions' shirt for members of the winning team (7) and their coach. Trophies will be awarded to the Top 3 teams in all races oncethe results are official and have been posted.

Since several teams are traveling some distance we have been asked for overnight recommendations. Together with Discover Saratoga we have provided a site with direct links to accommodations at the end of this letter, some with discounts specific to the Invitational.  Another good option would be Clifton Park, which has a large variety of hotels and restaurants and is only 20 minutes away from the park. (See below.) Please feel free to share this information with any of the runners' families who may be interested in coming to see the races. Also, below are some driving directions to Saratoga State Park for your convenience. On the day of the event there will be food trucks and concessions for onsite eating as well as commemorative t-shirts for sale. Cash and small bills are preferred for concessions when possible.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at:invy@bhblrunners.com.We look forward to seeing you this year at the Invitational!
