Dear coaches,
 
The 36th Annual Greenhill/Luke's Locker 6-Mile Relay will be held on Saturday, August 28, 2021, at Norbuck Park. After a year off due to COVID, this year's meet will be back and better than ever! The season-opening relay will feature multiple races in three categories with a pair of hay bale obstacles along the course.
 
As we plan for the 36th Annual Greenhill/Luke's Locker 6-Mile Relay, we are thrilled to be back competing and hosting the relay event for the 36th time. The tradition will continue. There is also the reality that we are living in a global pandemic, one that seems to be improving in Texas. Greenhill School will be monitoring conditions this summer and working alongside Dallas County health officials to ensure that the relay operates safely. As you have surely experienced with many decisions over the past fifteen months, event regulations may pivot if health conditions change (for the better or for the worse) in Dallas. Your patience and understanding as we plan our event is greatly appreciated.
 
Greenhill will be making some changes to the 36th Annual Greenhill/Luke's Locker 6-Mile Relay. Those could include: requiring participating schools to complete their own COVID screening, limiting the number of participating schools, limiting the number of spectators per athlete, increasing our volunteer numbers to help with social distancing practices, increasing the number of sanitizing stations, and increasing the number of start “waves.” One option for the start waves would include: racing a set number of schools together in a wave and each school would have their varsity and junior varsity runners in that race. Another option would be to stick with our traditional format and add another “wave” to separate the JV A and JV B races.
 
Deadline for entry into the 36th Annual Greenhill/Luke's Locker 6-Mile Relay will be Wednesday, August 25, 2021. Entries will close once 40 schools register (due to COVID-19 we may limit the field even more). Below are special instructions on entry:
 
  • $50 for each relay team
  • $350 maximum fee for schools entered in multiple divisions
  • A school may enter two Varsity teams and a maximum of six Junior Varsity teams.
 
Special Notes:
  • Please understand that in the case of inclement weather (beyond our control) that forces the cancellation of the race, school entry fees for the 36th Annual Greenhill/Luke's Locker 6-Mile Relay will not be refunded.
  • Since this meet normally marks the beginning of the cross country season, we realize that it might be difficult with the entry fee so just bring it with you to the meet or mail it later on.
