The 6th Annual NC Middle School XC Championship is the "unofficial" Middle School State Championship. The field is limited to 14 teams, and typically hosts 2,000 spectators and 700 athletes, including several nationally-ranked individuals and teams. The race features chip timing, professional DJ, food vendors, t-shirts, and many awards for the Championship, Open and 6th Grade races. The "amphitheater" course features a combination of open field and wooded trails, with the majority of the race visible to spectators. The course is known for its finish, as athletes must conquer a 150 meter, 6% grade hill to the finish line. It is a true test of fitness and strategy at the end of the season.
