Event details and schedule
In the first week of the competition, “Regionals,” you will race a 5k against runners from your home region. In each race runners must post one of the top twenty-five times in the region in order to advance. If you finish outside the top twenty-five your race is over. The top twenty-five goal is the same in every region regardless of the number of competitors.
In the second week of competition, “The Dual Meet,” the top twenty-five from each region will compete in an 8k against the top twenty-five from another region. Again, the top twenty-five advance, and the bottom twenty-five are eliminated.
In “East vs. West” the runners who have advanced from “The Dual Meet” will match-up in two separate 6k regional finals, “The Eastern Regional” and “The Western Regional,” and in the final week the top twenty-five from the two regional finals will race a 10k at Nationals.
