- THE GIRLS' MIDDLE SCHOOL ISSUE HAS BEEN FIXED.
- MAKE CHECKS PAYABLE TO "SOUTH VIEW HIGH SCHOOL."

- THIS IS AN ENTRY FEE, NOT A PARTICIPATION FEE. IF YOU ENTER THE MEET AND DO NOT REPORT TO THE MEET, YOUR SCHOOL WILL BE BILLED.
- WE ARE HOPING TO HAVE A LINK HERE TO A W-9 FORM WITHIN THE NEXT TWO DAYS.
PLEASE DO NOT ENTER ATHLETES WHO ARE NOT PHYSICALLY READY TO COMPETE IN A 5000 METER RACE. NOT ONLY IS THIS A SAFETY CONCERN, BUT WE CANNOT HOLD THE MEET UP FOR KIDS WHO DO A 40 MINUTE 5K. WE WANT ALL OUR KIDS TO ENJOY THE JUNGLE RUN EXPERIENCE, BUT WHEN IN DOUBT, SIT THEM OUT.
Welcome to South View High School. We hope you enjoy the Jungle Run. We feel the night-time experience is truly unique. The meet keeps growing and growing and we are very excited about this.

If your team has not paid, please do not ask to pay later. If your team does not have its money, you may not race.
If you need more pins for bib numbers, please come back to check-in.
IF ATHLETES DO NOT FINISH A RACE, IT IS THE COACH'S RESPONSIBILITY TO COLLECT THEIR TAG OR HAVE THE ATHLETE COME OVER TO SO WE CAN THEIR TAG OFF. IF TAGS ARE NOT TURNED IN, YOU WILL BE CHARGED.
Bibs and Shoe Tags:ATHLETES MUST WEAR NUMBER BIBS AND SHOE TAG!!!
Athletes need to put 2 pins in the top of their numbers on the FRONT of their uniforms.
Make sure the tag is secure. Athletes do not always tie them in very well.
If an athlete loses their shoe tag while racing, the clip crew taking the shoe tag off will pull off the perforated bib tag at the bottom of their bib number. THE ATHLETE NEEDS TO INFORM THEIR COACH IMMEDIATELY THAT THEY LOST THEIR TAG SO THE COACH CAN MAKE SURE THEY ARE INCLUDED IN THE RESULTS.
Tents: Tents may be placed along the hill in the front of the football stadium or in the areas beside the football
bleachers. YOU MAY NOT PUT UP TENTS INSIDE THE FENCE AROUND THE TRACK.
Declaring Your Top 10: You do not have to tell us which athletes are running which race. Just line time up and turn them loose. Every team is assigned a starting box. If there are open boxes, we will move you down.
Course: The course is 5,000 meters on the athletic fields of the South View Athletic Complex. The course is open
for warm-ups until 5:45pm. Please see map included in this information.
Off Limits: The practice fields are open for warm-ups and stretching. No one before, during or after the race will be
allowed on the inside of the track fence unless they are a race official, an athlete finishing a race or a coach.
Shoes: Spikes are allowed. Mostly grass and dirt. Runners will cross asphalt a couple of times.
Uniforms: In the Championship and Invitational Races each team's uniform should comply with NFHS rules. If there is a problem, see Coach Autry. In the Developmental Race, uniforms must be school-issued, but do not have to match perfectly.
Spectators: Are invited to roam anywhere and everywhere on the course except on the varsity football field or the home, track straightaway. BUT BE ALERT AND WATCH OUT FOR THE GATOR AND RUNNERS!!!
Concessions: Will be available at the Safari Station at the front of the football stadium.
