The Bengals kick off the season with both varsity and junior varsity runners at the Billings Invitational on Friday, August 31.
ATHLETES! The bus to Billings will leave from Helena High at 6 a.m. Friday, August 31, which means that athletes should arrive at the school no later than 5:45 a.m. to ensure they’re seated before the departure time. We will load our team tents, as well.
The meet begins at noon (schedule below) at Amend Park on the south side of Billings – conveniently located just off Interstate 90. Parents, you can click on the name of the park above for a Google maps location to ensure you arrive safely and on time to cheer the Bengals.
Also, because this is a new event for the Bengals, I created a map of the course below with help from the Senior and Skyview coaches. It is flat and very fast. In fact, most of the runners from the Billings schools established there PRs there at last year’s city meet. It also appears to be spectator friendly, featuring several spots where you can cheer our runners multiple times.
