  • “El Caliente” HS Varsity Race Teams
    • There will be 2 heats, 1 “hotter” than the other
    • Teams can have up to 8 athletes
    • Cost is $100 per team
    • Considered the “Varsity Race” with special trophy for team winner
    • No unattached runners
    • Guidelines for heat assignments will be shared directly with coaches when registration opens

To address issues with the starting line for the El Caliente High School events, both boy’s and girl’s El Caliente events will be split into 2 heats.  Boxes will be assigned for both heats in both genders.  Heat assignments will be decided utilizing the previous year’s Chile Pepper times for each school.  Faster times will be placed in the first heat and the balance in the second heat.  Schools new to the Chile Pepper will be placed in the second heat unless the Board determines a different assignment is appropriate. BOTH HEATS WILL BE SCORED AS ONE EVENT!

Box assignments will be completed after registration closes and be posted on the website by Thursday, September 28th
