Come and get a preview of what your fall championship season could look like! 

Thursday Night: 5:00pm at John Hunt Cross Country Park 

Cutoff Times & Seeding

Seed times can be submitted from January of 2022 and can be edited by event staff up to registration closing for the event. 

For this meet we do have cutoff times for entry to ensure the meet moves smoothly and in a quick fashion. Seed times will be what divides heats. Heat sizes and numbers will depend on number of entries. If you are in a state that runs 1500m, 1600m or 3000m please make a reasonable conversion to the mile and 3200m. The final two heats of the night will be the championship heats. Seed time is what qualifies you for those heats in addition to a couple of select invites with previous success at the 2022 RunningLane Cross Country Championship and track accolades. There is no exact time that qualifies you for specific heats. 


Boys 400m: 1:10

Girls 400m: 1:25

Boys 800m 2:30

Girls 800m 3:00

Boys Mile 6:00

Girls Mile 6:30

Boys 3200m 12:30 

Girls 3200m 13:30 



If the athlete plans on doubling (running multiple events i.e. the Mile and the 3200m), the first event is $25 ($30 for late registration) and the second event will be discounted $15. This is only possible if you are registering for 2 events in a single sign up period. If you register for one event on a Friday and decide to add another event on a Saturday, the discount will not be automatically applied.

Swag available to purchase at registration: 

T-shirt (pictured above) - $25

Bag (pictured above) - $50

Singlet (pictured below) - $45

Medals will be given to top 8 overall finishers of each event.
