Backwards Bowl Invitational 2015

Meet Information


Weve made two changes to the Backward Bowl for 2015: 1) only the Bowl mile will be run in reverse order, and 2) weve added a two-mile race (the Freshman course). In order to facilitate more runners at the start of the race, the race will go off from the true starting line and finish at the true finish line. The Bowl mile will be run in reverse order in keeping with the Backwards Bowl theme. Since its an early season race, weve also added a two-mile race for those that dont need a full 5K at Holmdel Park yet. The only twist is that in order to compete for the Invitational championship, youll have to have runners in both the Backwards Bowl 5K and the two-mile race.

Holmdel Park is located minutes off of the Garden State Park in Holmdel, NJ. The Monmouth County Park System maintains the 500 acre park and the 5000 meter and 2 mile cross country courses. Both courses cover challenging hills and well maintained trails. The 5000 meter course features the infamous Bowl. However, youll be running the Bowl mile IN REVERSE at this race. The two-mile freshmen course race does NOT run the Bowl.

- Medals to the first 25 finishers in each race
