Southern California Cross Country Invitational Saturday, October 13th, 2012
The Running Center Southern California Cross Country Invitational has 18 races. The Varsity races are all “match races,” i.e., your #1 Varsity boy will race against all the #1 boys from competing schools. The same is true with the #1 Girls. In the next race, your #2 will compete against the #2 runners and so on for your seven top runners. The novice and JV fields are much larger than the varsity ones. Seniors, who are not in your top 7 are allowed to compete in the JV races.
The number of races:
We will again be combining the #4 & #5 races and will do the same with the #6 & #7 races. The Division 1 and 2 JV and Novice runners will each have their own race. If a freshman is in your top 7 he or she is expected to run in one of the varsity races. If you have a returning runner they are expected to run in the JV race and not in the Novice race. Novice races are intended for runners who are new to XC or new to High School level XC.
Boys and girls varsity along with the boys JV and Novice runners will compete on our 5k course. The Girls JV and Novice runners will compete on our NEW 2.75 mile (League Championship) course. San Diego is known for its great sunny climate but in previous years we have also experienced very wet and muddy conditions at this race. Please be prepared for anything ☺
Help for Smaller/Younger teams: Competition at So. Cal is great every year with some of the best teams in our section as well as outside of our section going head to head. If you are concerned that your top runner is not strong enough to compete against the #1 runners of other schools etc. please contact us: We will do our best to accommodate your needs.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in October! Sonia Rodriguez-Flores Srodrigu24@yahoo.com
