Wahsatch Rendezvous Information

This meet has a unique format for the varsity races as well as an open race for coaches and family members.  The cost of the open race is $10. If you have 3 or more members from your family running, it is $5 each. The meet is at the Cottonwood Complex 4300 S. 1300 E.

This meet features a girls’ JV race and a boys’ JV race beginning at 9:00 a.m. Starting at 10:10 a.m. the boys will lead off a series of 14 varsity races (Seven races for boys and seven races for girls). All number seven team runners will race one another, and then the number six team runners will race each other, etc. The girls’ team races will leave the starting line two minutes after the boys’ team races. We will again offer the classic Wahsatch Rendezvous T-shirts for $15. Please tell your runners in advance about the t-shirt sale.

Scoring The team score will be computed by totaling the finish places of all seven runners. A perfect score would be 7, with one team of runners winning all 7 races. In the event of a tie, the place will be determined by calculating the team’s total time. If a team cannot field 7 runners for the meet, the team will not qualify for 1st and 2nd place trophy awards.

Awards The top five runners in each varsity race will receive a medal, thereby allowing athletes who don’t often medal to be recognized. Additionally, the winner of each race will receive a t-shirt with CHAMPION on the back. The top fifteen junior varsity finishers will receive medals. Those runners placing sixteen through thirty will receive ribbons. Team trophies will be awarded to the top two girls’ and boys’ teams.
