The Boundary Battle lets athletes challenge themselves against the fastest high school, community and elite distance runners in the Mid-Atlantic region. 

High School 5000m:
In this state versus state elite high school battle royal, athletes will be teamed with other runners from their home state and the meet will be scored like an invitational with top honors going to the state with the lowest combined score through 5 runners. 

Elite Athlete 5000m:
After the high school runners light up the track with some fast times, the elite men and women's fields will toe the line and dig deep for some serious speed!  The fields for the elite races are starting to ramp up and should feature some of the best runners on the east coast.
