Entry Fees

High School Races:

The $100 entry fee (per team, per gender) for the high school and open junior entries entitles each to 20 chipped bibs. Teams will be placed into divisions by the FSU XC Invitational High School Committee. Each high school team will be allowed to race a maximum of 10-chip-issued athletes in the varsity races. The balance can be used for the junior varsity races.

Elite & Select Divisions: Participation will be limited to 28-30 teams per gender. Teams will be placed into divisions by the FSU XC Invitational High School Committee.

Varsity A&B Divisions: Every effort will be made to balance team entries in the two divisions. Teams will be placed into divisions by the FSU XC Invitational High School Committee.

Junior Varsity Division: Teams planning to compete in the Friday junior varsity races should email Bob Thomas bttrackguy@outlook.com of their intentions for planning purposes. Those who may exceed their allotment of 20 chips per gender may purchase additional chips in advance for $5 per athlete, which must be paid along with the entry fee.

Individual High School Athletes:

Individuals must represent their high school. Unattached high school runners are prohibited. Individual athletes, with their coaches approval, may run in a race apart from their team. Qualifying standards of sub-16:00 (boys)/sub-19:00 (girls) for Elite and sub-17:00 (boys)/sub-20:00 (girls) for Select will be strictly enforced.

Teams can run a B team if they wish but they will not be seeded in the same race as the A team and will have to pay the $100 entry fee as a separate team.
