RELAY RACE FORMAT
This relay format really promotes a fun/team oriented atmosphere. WE HAVE PERMANENT LIGHTS AND WILL ALSO BRING IN PORTABLE LIGHTING TO LIGHT OUR ENTIRE XC COURSE!!!!!
The race will be run on a course consisting of slight hills and grass and dirt trails. Each runner will run a 2500 meter loop. The course is quite spectator friendly.
Each school may enter a men=s & women=s A,B, & C team. The race is a 5 x 2500 meter relay. Each school enters teams of 5 runners. Each runner runs a 2500 meter leg and then hands off the baton to their teammate. Please designate top 5 runners as team A, #6-10 runners as team B, & #11-15 as team C. PLEASE DO NOT PUT YOUR TOP RUNNERS ON YOURB OR C TEAM. WE WILL AWARD MEDALS TO THE TOP A, B, & C TEAM AND THEREFORE WANT FAIR COMPETITION IN EACH CATEGORY.
Anditional runners on your team can compete in the open 2500 meter Extras Race
This race is designed for High School runners who are not on one of your relay teams. There will be 3 men�s sections and 2 women�s sections. The extras race will run the same 2500 meter loop. Coaches must time their own runners. Medals will be given to the top 15 finishers in each race.
FASTEST LEG OF THE DAY
We thought it would be fun for the runners to see how their leg stacked up against the competition. We will have a desk near the finish area with a person recording the fastest team splits COACHES...... If you could record the name and fastest 2500 meter split time for your team it would be appreciated (please do this a few minutes after the A race). The male and female runners with the fastest split will receive a plaque at the awards ceremony.
