their school location. Non U.S. citizens who attend high school in the U.S.
and who meet the age requirement may compete. Home-schooled students

(grades 6-8), Open (ages 18-39), Masters (ages 40+). Each entrant will receive
a T-shirt. High School runners are not allowed in the Open Race. Open
entrants can only run in the Open Race. The top 24 female and male runners
in each division will receive a medal on raceday.
Every runner in every race will receive a short-sleeved T-shirt and a meet program highlighting the previous 35 years of Foot Locker races, as well as previewing this year’s race.
Please collect, neatly trim, and mail your team entries together. Check for
signed waivers, payment, and completion of entry information. Every coach
who enters at least seven runners as a group entry will receive a compli -
mentary T-shirt, provided we received your entry before the deadline of

YOUR GROUP WILL BE SET ASIDE AS A TEAM. For those teams that may have
entered on active.com and wish to have a team packet set aside; the coach is
asked to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the names of those team members.

combined grade races, the top 24 finishers in each grade will be awarded
State Team Awards
The top five boys and top five girls from each individual state will constitute
that state’s “team.” Each individual in the top five state teams will receive a
medal. They are selected from the seeded races only. Please check the
results before leaving the park.
The health and safety of each competitor is our primary concern.
Foot Locker meet officials will act in the runner’s best interest. Interference
