We will not be holding a Blaine Invite this year. Our initial reason for moving from October to September was that the meet was too close to our conference meet, and this year it would have been only 6 days before the NWSC. We could not work out a date in September with our schedule and the golf course's schedule. We will re-evaluate by next fall and decide what to do going forward.2016 RESULTS:http://www.raceberryjam.com/2016/blainebluegirls.html

Once again chips will be assigned to each runner. Coaches please inform your runners that a fee is charged for missing chips. Please register once you know which athletes will be competing and scratch as the deadline approaches.Please run up to 10 varsity athletes in the White or Blue divisions as assigned.
Do not include athletes who will not run at the Blaine Invite.We pay for each registered athlete and last year we paid for hundreds who did not run. In 2015, we paid $418 for athletes who did not run-approximately 9 runners per team. Please check this as we approach the deadline. You may think hosting a meet is a for profit venture, but we lose money most years and barely break even some years.
Another important note for athletes is that there will be a chute at the finish for the runners earning medals and ribbons. After those runners have finished the finish line workers will switch chutes.
Stronger teams are assigned to the blue races.
