Athlete Check-In at Clerk-of-the-Course:
All athletes must check in with the Clerk-of-the-Course 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of their race. The Clerk is located inside the track at the West End—near the high jump and steeple chase. If an athlete misses his or her heat, he or she will not be placed in a slower heat.
Athletes can continue to warm-up on the infield after checking in with the Clerk.
We are not using bibs this year. We are using hip numbers. Athletes will be given two hip numbers at the Clerk. Both hip numbers go on the LEFT side—one on the hip and one on the chest.
Elite Meet Seeding:
The seeding for the Elite Night Section of the meet took into consideration the following four factors in this order…
1. Best time run this season at that specific distance
2. Best performances from this year’s XC season
3. Other strong performances run this year at a distance different than the event
4. Personal All-Time best time run in this event
