Description

Cross Country meet at Hudson Mills Metro park. Distances are 2K, 3K, 4K, and  5K. There is also an open 5K race for anyone wanting to run a cross country race. Medals for the top 6 in each age group.

This meet is a Qualifier meet for the "Cross Country Coaches National Youth Championships", which takes place Saturday November 17 at "E. P. Tom Sawyer Park" in Louisville, KY. The web-site for the National meet, which draws an estimated 2000 youth athletes from across the country every year, is here:

The top 3 "scoring teams" and the next 20 individual runners in each "single-year" youth age-division will advance from THIS meet to the NATIONAL meet in Louisville. The youth age-divisions are as follows:
Age-6 division (kids born in 2012, running the 2K race)
Age-7 division (kids born in 2011, running the 2K race)
Age-8 division (kids born in 2010, running the 2K race)
Age-9 division (kids born in 2009, running the 3K race)

NOTE: There will be combined age-divisions in each race, but athletes will be ranked separated. For example, there will be "age-13" kids (born in 2005) and "age-14" kids (born in 2004) running in the same 4K race, but they will all be ranked separately. So the top 3 "scoring teams", the next 20 "age-13" kids, and the next 20 "age-14" kids -- will all advance to the National meet (per gender).

"Scoring teams" are actually 2-year teams, so in the example above: five (5) or more kids born in 2004 or 2005 from the same club/gender in the 4K race are a "scoring team". "Scoring teams" must have at least 5 runners. So if there are twelve age-13 girls and twelve age-14 girls among the top three (3) girl "scoring teams" in the 4K race, then there can be as many as 32 age-13 girls and another 32 age-14 girls -- all advancing to the Nationals.

NOTE: Even though there is an Open 5K race for adults, only the youth athletes running in the 5K are eligible to compete in the National Championship, since the age limit for the National Championship is 18 years old (kids who were born on or after 11/18/1999).
