2016 Mid-Atlantic Prep League
The eighteenth annual MAPL Cross-Country Championship will be conducted on the Peddie School Golf Course on Wednesday, November 2, 2016. The varsity boys’ race is scheduled to start at 1:30 Following the completion of the boys’ varsity race, the girls’ varsity race will begin at 2:00. The Futures Race, a mixed gender JV race, will start at approximately 2:30.
The route will be marked in accordance with National High School Federation rules which dictate the use of colored flags to designate changes of direction. The flags will be supplemented by a white marking on the ground in some areas to aid runners. Course marshals will also be present at critical points to guide runners.
Each runner will be assigned a bib number and will be required to wear the number pinned to the front of their jersey. Coaches will not need to declare the varsity runners before each race. The seven runners who report to the starting line of the varsity race will be considered the varsity team.
Runners who do not compete in the varsity races may compete in the mixed gender Futures race. Each runner in the Futures race will also be assigned a bib number and will be required to wear the number pinned to the front of their jersey.
