2014 BYU Cross Country Elementary School Invitational

BYU Campus Cross Country Course

Clarence Robison Track, Provo, Utah

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

We invite all elementary school youth to participate in the BYU Cross Country Elementary School Invitational. You do not have to be from Utah Valley or even the state of Utah to participate! Each race is one mile and is run on grass with the finish on the track. The races are divided up with a race for each gender and each grade. Members of the BYU cross country teams will escort the children throughout each race. Races will start every five minutes on the grass at Clarence Robison Track. Each runner represents their elementary school. 

Last year we had more than 600 runners participate and Ranches Academy won the team trophy. 

Elementary school teams that have at least three participants in that age and gender will be recognized if they place in the top three schools in each race. To earn points toward the team scores in a race, a school must have at least three runners in that race. Points are awarded to three schools in each race. The first place school receives five points, the second place school receives three points, and the third place school receives one point. The school with the most points after all of the races is crowned the champion and receives stewardship of the championship trophy until the next year.
