This year’s event will be co-sponsored by Sacred Heart of Jesus. You can now begin to make your commitment to the 45th Annual Bellarmine-Sacred Heart Invitational. They invite your team to participate in this invitational, and they would like to continue providing optimum racing conditions and accommodate additional team entries. The meet will continue to take place at Griffith Park on Saturday September 29 (first race at 7:45 am). Entries have already gone live at www.episports.com; They will have 3 Divisions: Red, White and Black with the first race starting at 7:45 am.
This is the longest running event held in Griffith Park and has one of the oldest cross-country records in the Boy’s Varsity Race which was set by Richard Erbes in 1985 at 14:10 for the 2.89 mile course. They take pride in honoring Doug Speck, a giant in the sport who passed away several years ago by naming the boys’ seeded race in his honor. And ALL the races will take place at the Paul Suzuki Starting Line (Paul was a dedicated starter who also passed away several years ago in a tragic Track accident). Check (later) the Meet Schedule for race start times.
