What are my parking options for the event?
Since St. Edward’s University requires specific permits to park on campus, we have selected a field closest to public parking. Please park along St. Edward’s Drive, as it will be easily accessible to the field and does not require a parking permit.
What should I bring into the event?
Snacks and water will be provided, but here are some suggested items to bring:
– Towel or mat to lay on the ground for stretching
– Sunblock, sunglasses, hat, umbrella
– Prosthetic supplies (i.e. socks) *Saturday is expected to be somewhat humid, so this is just a reminder for amputees who may want to have their back-up supplies on hand*
– Wear athletic attire
– A WINNING SMILE :)
