    Courtesy Rules:

    If you have an athlete cannot run faster than 25 minutes in the VARSITY race, you should put them in the JV race.

    If your athlete must stop to walk during the race, we will ask them to step off the course and not finish.

    We will stop the automatic timing at 30 minutes. If you have an athlete running slower than 30 minutes, they will not get placed in the results and the coach will need to time themselves.

    For the Freshman and middle school Races, we will run the clock for a few additional minutes.
