Save the date - Brea XC Invitational and Wildcat Run return on October 3, 2015

The Brea XC Invitational will return on Saturday, October 3, 2015 at Carbon Canyon Regional Park in Brea.  The races for each level (Boys FS, Boys Var, Girls FS, and Girls Var) are further broken down into individual races that pit the #1-5 racers and the #6-7+ runners against each other.  This gives runners at all levels and abilities a shot at running near the front of the pack.  This is the same modified schedule that we used last year in order to get the athletes off the course before the heat of the day.

We have limited capacity at this venue, so please register early to reserve your spot.  There is a limit of 40 teams.

This year we will be using​ for entries. You may start entering athletes on starting 8/8/2015. 

Links to a flyer with race info, past results, a course map, a location map and the weather report are listed in the side bar to the right.

In addition, our booster club will be hosting a separate community race that is open to anyone. This year we will be offering $100 to the top male and female finishers as a prize. This community run known as the "Wildcat Run - Conquer the Canyon" is a fundraiser for the team; your support is greatly appreciated.  Detailed info about this race is also included in the link with race info.

2014 Brea XC Invite Results

The results for the 2014 Brea XC Invitational are now posted. See the link in the sidebar to the right for access to the pdf files with the results. Please note that "team time" and not "place scoring" was used for this meet since each level consisted of 2 races and all runners were not racing against each other.

Thank you to all the participants, supporters, and most of all the volunteers that made this event possible and successful. We hope to see you again next year!


Schedule adjusted to accommodate predicted heat

Attention Coaches & Athletes-

Due to the predicted heat for Saturday, we have adjusted the meet schedule.  See the revised schedule in the sidebar to the right.  To summarize, we have combined some of the races to allow us to finish the meet 1 hour earlier.  Instead of having separate races for the 1-2 runners and 3-5 runners - at each level those two races have been combined.  The 6-7+ races will continue as they have in the past.

Please be safe and hydrate properly.  Although there are many trees in the park - plan on bringing your own shade (EZ-Ups, etc.) as well.  Coach Mattern's letter to the coaches has more information.

See you on Saturday.
