There will be five races. Team champion trophies, team runner-up trophies, and medallions to the top three individual finishers will be awarded in the boys and girls varsity races. T-shirts will be awarded to the top 40 finishers in each of the varsity races, and the top 15 boys and top ten girls in the junior varsity race. Only advanced registrations will be accepted.
