Travel Release:  We will be traveling as an entire team on Friday for the first time.  We have a couple of requests to allow everything to run smoothly.
  • If you plan to transport your runner to the meet a Travel Release Form must be completed by Thursday  and turned into Coach Smith.
  • Runners arriving to the meet with their parent(s) still need to have their Magnus app questions completed that morning and report to our chip/bib table to have their temperatures taken as soon as they arrive.  Once cleared a wristband will be given to signify they are permitted to run.
  • Runners being transported by their parents can also have their temps taken at school prior to bus departure if parents would prefer to follow the busses to the meet.
  • Other runners that ride on the bus to the meet, but decide to ride home with a parent will need to let Coach Smith know prior to leaving.  No form is needed as those we completed during CC registration.

  • Uniform
  • Warm up or equivalent for over uniform (There is no Camp Gard -so dress warmly).
  • Training shoes
  • Mask (worn at all times except racing)

2. No parents should be around the starting line or finish line.
3. Parents, Athletes, and Coaches should be wearing Masks.
4.  When your race is over please leave the area ASAP, I understand how important the cooldown is, but we need to move people in and out of that area ASAP.
5. The bus parking area blocked off with cones on Appleblossom, please only bus parking. Parents park elsewhere.


  • We will allow 2 spectators per athlete.
  • Spectators must wear masks and maintain 6ft of social distance.
  • Spectators are not allowed in the team areas, at the start, nor at the finish.
  •  Spectators should not park at the end of Appleblossom near the busses.
  • Spectators should not bring dogs (WIAA requirement.)


  • This timing system is contactless which allows for an open chute and no cards being handed out.  We will have a video back up.
  • The results will be posted at xctiming.com
  • .Chips must be returned before leaving the meet.
  • The race will be scored varsity only using the top five runners from each team. No designation between varsity and JV will be used. (NDA will calculate the JV score and post to our website.)

Starting line

  1. Runners cannot report to the start line until 10 min before the start.  They may do warm up strides and drills in the  field or adjacent areas prior to reporting to the starting line.
  2. Teams will line up their top 16 runners with 6ft spacing in between.    The next next set of runners will line up behind their teammates 6 feet behind them.  Both will start at the gun.
  3. Masks will be worn until 30 sec before the race start.  Runners should hold their masks so they have access to them at the finish or if they feel a need to use them during the race.
  4. No team huddles or cheers, no warmups, only athletes and coaches allowed at start area


  1. Runners should do their best to not run directly next to in front of or behind someone within reason.  The course is wide enough in many areas where they could run 6 feet apart while still side by side.
  2. Runners should run through the chute and disperse from the finish line immediately after the race.  We will have workers to facilitate this process.

After the race

  1. Runners will be afforded 20 minutes to complete a cool down.  That cool down should not be done on any part of the course that would impede the runners of the next race nor should it be used to cheer for the racers.  
  2. After a team has completed their assigned races and cool down they should report to buses and leave the meet as soon as possible.
