University/college/open men & women: 3.1 miles (5k)
Gold-5A-4A (boys/girls) & 3A-2A-1A (boys): 3.1 miles (5k)
3A-2A-1A (girls) & JV (girls/boys): 2 miles
1. University/college/open (unlimited entries)
Gold (elite boys and girls teams only/only seven per team)
5A-4A-3A-2A-1A (unlimited entries)
4. JV (only for sophomores and
younger/we will allow junior high athletes, as well)
Teams must run in their division or in the gold division. If you choose to move up, you only can move seven up to a higher division. You still can run as many as you want in your UIL classification.
The entry fee this year is $12 per athlete (please note change) and you are asked to pay at packet
pickup (checks are not to be mailed). Make checks payable to "UTSA Athletics" and list the meet name in the memo section. Due to the fact that we have to rent chips for our timing
system, you will be charged for the number of athletes that you register/enter and NOT for the number of athletes who run. Additionally, teams who enter but do not show up also will be billed. PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF THIS WHEN SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRIES.
We will use Direct Athletics this year. See below for instructions (high school athletes may NOT run unattached in any of the high school divisions and doing so will result in risking eligibility for the rest of the season).
