Varsity Qualifying Time Standards

These are time standards which we believe many young middle school runners can achieve with an honest effort in their training and preparation…regardless of talent level. Coaches, please consider these guidelines when determining your Varsity runners:

Varsity Teams consist of 7 athletes.

Additional athletes (up to 10 total) may compete in Varsity Races provided they have ALL met the INDIVIDUAL Qualifying Standard for their division.

To enter more than 7 athletes in a Varsity race (up to 10 total) EACH athlete will need to have achieved the INDIVIDUAL QUALIFYING STANDARD!

Individual Time Standards

Small School Girls – 14:15
Small School Boys – 13:00
Big School Girls – 13:15
Big School Boys – 12:15

Team Time Standards (Top 5 add-up times)

Small School Girls – 71:15
Small School Boys – 65:00
Big School Girls – 66:15
Big School Boys – 61:15

*** NEW FOR 2023 ***


In order for each race to have a more equitable start for all those participating…

Teams may have a maximum of 2 athletes “on the line” at the start of each race! Remaining team members must line up BEHIND their teammates who are positioned on the start line!

Note: Prior to 2023, we allowed schools to have 3 athletes “on the line” at the start of each race.


  • You must be prepared with your school’s combined 7th and 8th grade enrollment on a day (of your choosing) between the opening and closing of this registration. You will be required to submit this number and place your teams in the appropriate School Size Division.
  • Please exercise care when typing athletes’ names, as all names on event merchandise will be printed from a registration download.
  • You are registering these kids for the event when you complete the process, not a particular race. We do not need to know which race the kids intend to run. So long as they line up and compete in the appropriate race, everyone’s happy. It is up to the coach, parent, and/or athlete to make sure they do this. We will just score the runner for whatever race the chip assigned to them crosses the line!
  • Event merchandise is not included in the price of registration. It will be for sale on event day.
