» Edmonton Harriers Cross-Country Series Race #2
Students are registered by their school. If your school is not participating or your child is home‐schooled and you wish your child to participate, please follow the same instructions as for the schools. If you wish to have students participate in any of the cross‐country races, please complete the entry form including your school information and send to: nikki @ellistrack.ca.
There will be no on‐site registration. All schools will be billed after the last race based on the number of athletes from their school that cross the finish line. An electronic invoice will be sent to the Coach or Billing Person approximately 2 weeks after the last race.
The entry fee this year will be $5.00 per child per race. This entry fee covers the cost of insurance, park permits, plaques, ribbons, medals etc.
The Harriers cross‐country series consists of three meets for elementary students with races for Grades 3 to 6. Students compete against others in their own grade and of their own gender, thus each meet consists of eight races. Students younger than Grade 3 may participate in the Grade 3 races. The meets make up a series in which students earn points for themselves (in the individual competition) and for their school (in the team competition). Awards are given for the
combined results of the three meets. Students must participate in all three meets to be eligible for the individual awards.
Race distances will vary from about 1300 m to 1750 m.
The meets start at 4:45 pm. The first race will start at 4:45 with races beginning approximately every 10‐15 minutes after that.
For all meets the race order will be:
• Grade 6 girls • Grade 6 boys
• Grade 5 girls • Grade 5 boys
• Grade 4 girls • Grade 4 boys
• Grade 3 and younger girls • Grade 3 and younger boys
