Over the last few years WakeMed has been thought to be the fastest course in North Carolina. Even though Friday Night Lights conditions were ideal for fast times this year it still shows that the state meet course is still a fast course. Some athletes did a tempo at FNL and not at adidas, so I tried to take them out of the comparison. For the boys the difference for athletes that ran both races on average was only 6 seconds faster at WakeMed for athletes that were in the top 500 times at adidas from North Carolina. For the girls Friday Night Lights was 10 seconds FASTER than adidas XC Challenge! Though it doesn't mean much, I thought it was something interesting to look into when looking at which courses in NC provide the fastest times.
