Doubt many high schoolers will show, it is the day before sections for a lot of schools.

Actually the majority of the schools in that area are in NCS which will have it's championship a week later.

We have 18 schools signed up already, but we still want more! Don't miss out on this incredibly fun and fast night of racing!

How smart is it two race a two mile time trial on the track a week before before NCS? Serious question, I would like to know coaches and athletes opinions?

Albert Caruana said...

Teams do time trials at different points in the season. This just happens to be publicized because of the sponsor. With a two week break between the league meets and the NCS meet, a TT helps bridge the gap for most athletes. A 2 mile TT trial is also a nice change of pace from XC and I don't think as grueling as a 5k XC race.

Coach Small said...

One thing to consider is only seven members of a team get to race at the section meet. I think this would be a great "post season" opportunity to hit a PR for majority of runners done after league meets.

The runners will most likely do this in practice anyway, if not more mileage at a faster pace. I don't see any harm as long as runners who may have potential injuries were to run
