Rocket Hokum Karem Relay

Asheville, NC
Hosted by A.C. Reynolds

Meet Information

Hokum Karem Relay- a relay in which two-person teams take turns running a one-mile loop, aka, a great way to get your team to run a mile repeat workout.

For this meet, coaches can choose to put teams in the varsity (3 miles per runner / 6 miles total) or JV (2 miles per runner / 4 miles total). JV boys and girls will run together. Teammates will run one mile at a time and slap hands in the exchange zone after each loop.

Individuals (odd numbers or athletes not ready for multiple loops) can run with the lead-off leg of the JV race.

Scoring: We will calculate team scores using traditional cross country scoring with the top THREE relay places added up for each team, and the fourth relay for each team counted in the scoring positions and used for tie-breaking.


8:40am - JV relay

9:20am - Boys varsity relay

10:10am - Girls varsity relay

Entry guidelines: Please limit varsity teams to boys that can finish in under 45 minutes and girls that can finish in under 55 minutes. Maximum of 8 varsity teams per school, per race.

"Super-Varsity" - Runners are allowed to do an (unofficial) extra loop after finishing their official race to get in a longer workout. We ask that any athletes doing this please start their extra loop from the starting-line area, and not come into the exchange/chute at the finish of the extra loop.
