NEVADA CROSS COUNTRY WEB SITE

Please click on the following link, www.runnerspace.com/nv, for general items of prep interest, regular-season meet information and complete results regarding both Southern Nevada and statewide cross country action.

 

GENERAL MEET INFORMATION

1. The championship will be governed by the National Federation and its cross country rules book for 2014. The meet will also follow the rules of the NIAA Handbook, the NIAA Reference Manual and this meet information packet. This meet information packet is a binding document for the rules and regulations of this meet.

2. Teams will consist of a maximum of seven runners, but only the first five finishers from a team will be counted in the team score. The scores (finishing places) of the sixth and seventh team members (if applicable) will serve to (displace) make the opponent’s score larger. All scoring will be recorded as set in the National Federation rules book. All individuals who qualify as unaffiliated/unattached to a team will be removed from the team scoring process.

NOTE: The "ghost runner" rule will be in effect during the Division III/IV races. This team scoring position will be used when a team does not have a fifth and/or fourth finisher. Team must, however, have at least three scoring runners to be eligible to use the "ghost runner(s)" rule.

3. The length of the course in all league/region and state meets will be approximately 5,000 meters. The Sunset Park course consists of grass, mostly packed DG and short sections of  pavement crossing. Spikes are permitted. LINK TO COURSE MAP: http://static.psbin.com/z/n/1tllf0nrw867zj/Sunset_Park_cross_country_map.pdf .

4. All team members must wear the same school-issued jersey and shorts. National Federation rules will apply to uniforms and jewelry.

5. Footwear must be used by athletes, but spikes are permitted.

6. Protests of running attire must be made before the start of a race. The race will be held up until the meet referee makes a ruling.

7. Starting boxes will be drawn by the NIAA office and distributed in the coaches packets on race morning. 

8. Results will be posted following the event. The NIAA will post results at niaa.com on the following business day. The NIAA office will distribute results to the media for same evening/next day publication.

9. Spectators will be allowed around the course (not on the course), provided they do not impede the progress of competitors.

10. Protests must be filed within 30 minutes of the completion of a particular race. Protests must reference a specific rule book violation in order to be considered. Judgment calls by designated meet officials are not for protest.

11. Athletes and coaches may inspect the course at any time prior to the meet (7:00 – 9:55 a.m.) and between the boys/girls sections (11:55 a.m. – 12:40 p.m.). However, once a first (boys/girls) section race has begun, the course is closed to all persons (except those competing in the race in progress) for the remainder of that (boys/girls) section. Meet officials have the authority to disqualify any individual who does not adhere to these course closure regulations.

 

AWARDS

The first and second place teams in each class race will receive NIAA trophies.                  The first-place team will also receive NIAA medals (7) for its individuals.                  Medals will be awarded to the top seven individual finishers in each class race.

 

UNIVERSAL MEET TIE-BREAKER

1. Ties involving teams:

a. The aggregate score of the first five finishers for each team shall constitute their team’s score. Ties for the championship, runner-up and state qualifying places will be handled in accordance with playoff procedures as written below:

National Federation Rule Book, Rule 9, Section 2, Articles 4 & 5

9-2-4. Ties in team scoring shall be resolved by comparing the sixth-place finishers from tying teams. The team with the best sixth-place finisher shall prevail. If one team does not have a sixth-place finisher, the team with the sixth-place finisher shall prevail.

9-2-5. If only five competitors of tying teams finish, the tie shall be resolved by totaling the scores of the first four finishers.

RACE DAY REMINDERS

* As a reminder, a maximum of seven (7) runners are allowed in races. Teams starting a race with more than seven competitors will be disqualified.

* No warm-ups, coaches, spectators or managers are allowed inside fenced and/or roped areas. Only race help, officials, media and in-race competitors will be allowed in those areas.

* Athletes and coaches may inspect the course at any time prior to the meet and between the boys/girls sections (see No. 11 under “General Information”). However, once a first (boys/girls) section race has begun, the course is closed to all persons (except those competing in the race in progress) for the remainder of that (boys/girls) section. Meet officials have the authority to disqualify any individual who does not adhere to these course closure regulations.

* Each race bib has four pins. Please have runners secure the number on the right and left side to the jersey, but do not pin the tear-away portion (bottom) of the tag. The tear-away will be removed in the finish chute.

* Please remember that cutting any part of the course (curves, paths, etc.) to gain an advantage will only lead to disqualification.
