Runners, grade 6-8, are invited to compete in the 4th annual State Cross Country Championship. This event is open to all Middle School athletes regardless of affiliation with an organized team.
Previous Middle School State meets have been held in Warrenton and Bandon. Last year, the event moved to the Portland area, and West Sylvan hosted an exciting new format that includes four races: separate boys and girls SUPERCHAMPS races and separate boys and girls CHAMPS races. The new races provide an opportunity for both elite and emergent racers.
SUPERCHAMPS races will be held with a maximum field of 225 runners. Up to 25 teams may register. In addition, up to 50 individual runners that meet time standards may participate. No time standards are required for teams or for individuals that run as part of a team. Teams consist of the top 7 runners from each school. One team per school may register for the SUPERCHAMPS race. Race standards for SUPERCHAMPS individuals are 12:00 minutes for boys, 13:00 minutes for girls and will be based on best athletic.net results for 3,000 meter races. The top 25 finishers will receive a medal in the SUPERCHAMPS race and the top 3 teams.
The CHAMPS race will be capped at 300 runners so please register early! Teams or individuals may enter; teams are comprised of 7 runners. No time standards are required for individuals or for teams. If space is available after October 18, more than one team per school may register for the CHAMPS race. The top team will receive an award in the CHAMPS race.
