This is the 2nd annual Dixie Headwaters Invitational.  In our inaugural year we had 7 schools compete (Aiken, Crescent, Dixie, Fox Creek, Laurens, Ware Shoals and Westside).  We will cap the event at 10 teams in 2020. This is a true cross country course (spike-friendly with no asphalt or concrete) at the headwaters of Long Cane Creek in Donalds, SC.  The course has a total elevation change of 70 ft and involves sections on grass as well as woodlands. The course map can be downloaded here. A course video is available here.  2020 COVID-specific policies and procedures are available here.

Results will be posted to scmilesplit.

Spectator parking will be at the Donalds Church of God (335 W Main St, Donalds SC) with entrance to the course behind the Church. Bus parking will be at 273 W Main St. (Buses will park on the south edge of the Lou & Perry's II Restaurant parking lot).  Additional spectator parking will be available at 175 County Rd S-1-156 (the former location of Lighthouse Christian Academy).  That overflow parking area will access the course around the 1/4 mile mark on the race course.

Spectator admission will be $3.

We are grateful to Lou & Perry's II Restaurant and the Donalds Church of God for graciously allowing the use of their parking lots for the race.  Spectators are asked to NOT park in the Lou & Perry's Lot during the race to allow parking for restaurant patrons.

Contact Coach Brian Gamble (bgamble@acsdsc.org) or Race Director Joel Boyd (wbuchem@yahoo.com) with questions or to obtain the registration password for your team. Team rosters can be updated until 5:00 PM on September 16th.
