Info You Need To Know
Please select the correct race
We have 4 different divisions so make sure you chose the right one.
- Elementary for all 5th grade and under runners
- Private and Home School individuals and teams
- Class A individuals and teams
- Class AA individuals and teams
In the Team Races we will score only your first 5 runners. If your School Varsity Cross Country team is Class A then you must enter your team in the Class A team division. If your School Varsity Cross Country Team competes in Class AA you would enter them in the Class AA team division. All runners MUST have competed on the same school team during the season. Teams cannot add runners from other schools. If you did not run together during the season you do not run together at the state meet! You must have a minimum of 5 runners to enter as a team. If less than 5 enter as individuals
Due to Tennessee guidelines school teams cannot compete in this event if they have already competed in their maximum number of meets for the season which is 12, they can however enter as a club team. Club teams can wear their school uniforms with schools permission. If you have competed in less than 12 meets you can enter as a school team and your school coach is permitted to coach you. If you already run 12 meets per year but would like to compete in the State Meet in 2024, consider replacing one of your smaller less competitive meets with the State Meet and use it as a Fun season ending event! Very FEW middle school teams run 12 meets per year by the way so most can enter as part of the school season.
Add the Middle School State Meet to your regular season Schedule next year and bring your teams for a fun filled weekend as a reward for a season of hard work. Each Middle School team is only permitted to compete in so many meets per year, Make the Middle School Championship one of them in 2024.
Distance will be 2 miles for all races. We will provide a lead vehicle for all races. We will provide bottled water to the athletes after each race. We will have a clock located at both the one mile mark and the finish. The Race will use Chip Timing. Races will be started by a Licensed Cross-country Official and a Licensed official at the finish line as well.
Starting Box Assignment Procedure
Teams will get their starting box number according to the order they registered and paid. So if you are the first team registered you will be in starting box number 1. We will also have a few boxes for individual runners as well. Assignments will be posted on our website October 12th.

**BRAND NEW IN 2023*** We love adding new and fun things for our runners to help make the day more memorable so this year we are giving away one large Gumball Machine every race to one of the top 15 finishers. The race winner will draw a number out of the hat that will have numbers 1 thru 15 inside. For example, if they draw number 9 then the 9th place finisher wins the prize!
Our award ceremony is second to none and runners receive their medals to the music of the Olympic Games at the 50 yard line.
The cost is $20 per individual, for teams the cost is $20 per runner or $150 per team whichever is less. There is no limit on the number of runners a team can enter. Bring them all, it's a great experience.
