Regional Cross Country Entries
Coaches are to submit online their entries for the regional meet. Entries are due by noon on October 19th. All students must be in the KSHSAA eligibility database in order to be submitted. Forms CC-1 and CC-2 should also be sent to the regional managers to they can double check entries.

State Cross Country Information
Information about the state cross country meets can be located on the KSHSAA Cross Country page under state site locations. Spectators should not being dogs to the state cross country meet. They will not be permitted on the course. Also refrain from bring footballs, Frisbees and other items that may be thrown on the course. The event is for the participants and we do not want items like these to distract runners or be thrown into fans.

Legal Uniform Document
Each school was sent a legal uniform document to make copies of and turn in prior to the start at all meets. This document must also be given to each regional manager prior to the start of the meet.

No Road Races During Cross Country Season
We continue to have violations of the outside competition rule. Rule 22 states: “A student who is a member of a school athletic squad effective Tuesday following Labor Day through Friday preceding Memorial Day may not participate as a member of an outside team or as an independent competitor in the same sport.” Students who are a member of the cross country team cannot compete in road races or marathons while a member of the school team.

Team Uniforms & Equipment
Garments worn under the shorts above the knees are considered foundation garments. Visible garments worn underneath the uniform bottom extending below the knees shall be unadorned and of the same single, solid color, but not necessarily the same length for team members wearing them. The logo rule applies to undergarments. However, not all team members must wear the visible undergarment. In cross country if two team members want to wear legal full length tights under their shorts and the other five choose not to – that is permissible. The rule just states that if more than one of the team members is wearing them – they have to be the same color – but not all are required to wear the undergarment.

Uniform Notes
As the weather gets cooler we get questions about what is permitted to be worn. In the event of inclement weather (cold, wet) stocking caps and gloves may be worn during competition (providing the games committee has not established a policy against wearing these items). Visors and baseball style hats may not be worn during competition.
