Chile Pepper Festival Information

Posted: October 1, 2015 in Uncategorized

Runners & Superfans,

This Saturday is the Chile Pepper Cross Country Festival at the University of Arkansas in Fayetville, AR. The Chile Pepper is a national cross country race and will have some of the best teams from multiple states.  The whole event is a true festival and a great opportunity for our runners to run with some of the best kids in the midwest. I will post the itinerary of times below, but wanted to remind everyone of a few facts.

  1. Students who want to purchase souvenirs will need to bring their own money as they have a large tent of items for sale and they are usually pretty cool.
  2.  Runners will need to eat breakfast before they get here and have some small snack with them to eat around mid morning before the race starts.  We will not be stopping for breakfast.
  3. Following the race, all runners receive free mexican food if they choose to eat.  The team will also be stopping at Peddler’s Pub Pizza in Bentonville AR to eat as a group. The cost of this meal will be covered by the team’s fundraising money.
  4. There is also a lot of walking from the parking area to the cross country meet. Please make sure that all superfans are aware of this and can make the walk.  Reminder this is a high school race only.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
