Each wave will start exactly 60 seconds after previous wave, the timing company will subtract your wave start from your finish time, and compile those results. You can see those results on elitetiming.net.  Although this is not ideal, we are happy to be racing and very excited to be participating in cross country. Athletes in second and third waves, may end up passing slower runners in waves 1 or 2. We are aware this is not ideal, but again, happy to be competing in the sport we love. Coaches, please explain to your athletes, they are expected to wear masks when not running, and physical distancing is expected at all times. Also explain, if your runner is being passed by a faster runner please be courteous and allow them to pass freely.
