Meet Information

2017 WNC Cross Country Carnival

We’re looking forward to hosting the 17th edition of the early-season mountain classic. Our climate is comparatively cool. Our course is challenging but fair (and slightly shorter than 5k). Our goal is to provide teams with a positive introduction to the season.

Teams are entered in the event and assigned races by email invitation only. We plan on capping the field at 40 schools.

We are seeking sanctioning for NC, SC, and TN.

Championship Boys (limit of 8 runners)- 8:30
Championship Girls (limit of 8 runners)- 9:00
Invitational Boys (limit of 7 runners)- 9:30
Invitational Girls (limit of 7 runners)- 10:00
Individual Boys (limit of 10 runners)- 10:40
Individual Girls (limit of 10 runners)- 11:20
3k Boys- 12:00
3k Girls- 12:20

A school may participate in multiple events (for example, top 8 boys in the Championship, 7 boys in the Invite, 10 boys in the Individual Race, and others in the 3K race).

Please note that the 3k is not a middle school race; it is intended for high school athletes who are not quite ready for the rigor of a full 5k due to inexperience, fitness level, etc. We certainly respect a coach's desire to challenge young athletes, but we also encourage a progressive approach to the season and a positive, enjoyable competitive experience. We appreciate your effort to assign athletes to a race appropriate for their current ability.

The entry fee is $100 and covers all participants from a given school ($50 if only a boys team or girls team; $20.00 for an individual). Athletes must represent their school. Make checks payable to TC Roberson Rams Club & mail to:

Unique ceramic awards created by Mud Dabbers Pottery in Balsam, NC will be presented to the top 10 individual finishers in the first three divisions and the top 5 finishers in the 3k. Team awards will go to the top two squads in the Championship and Invitational races.
