Cross Country Thrillogy
Fall Cross Country Classic
THE COURSE: The course is predominantly flat and fast. The 3k course will be one loop, and the 5K will be two loops consisting of the 3K loop and 2K loop. The Middle School athletes will run the 3K course and the High School and Open Athletes will run the 2k loop first. There will be distance markers every 1000 meters and then 400 meters from the finish.
THE COST: The cost per runner is $15.00 We encourage coaches to sign up their teams and not rely on their individual athletes to sign up themselves. Spectator Passes will be $5.00 (adults) and $3.00 (18 and under).There will be an online sign up for spectators or cash payment at the event.
EVENT INFORMATION: We are currently planning on holding 5 events, Boys and Girls Middle School 3K (open to runner 8th grade and younger), Boys and Girls High School 5K, and Open 5K (open to all ages). We will add races as we feel are necessary based upon total number of runners and estimated finish times.
TEAM INFORMATION: When you are signing up as a MS Team, you can sign up as a 5th and 6th grade team or a 7th and 8th grade team. You can move runners up a grade, but not down a grade. The 5th/6th and 7th/8th grade teams will run at the same time, but will be scored separately. If you have enough athletes you can sign up two or more teams in one division (i.e. fourteen 7th and 8th grade boys can be divided into two teams). No additions can be made after sign up is closed on October 26th. When signing up your teams, you will be asked to list your athletes’ best time or estimated finishing time. Open teams will be either: all male, all female, or co-ed (must have at least 2 women).
