Live Results:;

Other notes:
The first heats are always LARGE!  In 2019 we ran 5 heats with 70+ kids but the last two boys and girls heat we will keep at 20 or less. 
Music will be playing and we encourage kids, coaches, parents, etc to come down on the track to cheer.  
NO SPIKES ARE ALLOWED – only XC race racing flats.   
We use chip timing so every kid will get 400m splits.
