State Meet Information

 The 2022 UHSAA State Cross Country Championships will be held Tuesday, October 25 at the Regional Athletic Complex in Salt Lake City. The address of the RAC is 2280 Rose Park Ln, Salt Lake City, UT 84116. Team packets will be distributed at the team entrance area (listed on map). The facility will not open until one hour prior to the scheduled start of the first race for patrons (9:00 a.m. open for patrons; 8:30 a.m. for teams).   


Spectators will be charged for parking to enter the venue. Fans will not be able to enter the venue without parking in the facility. Vehicles with two-or-less individuals inside the car will be charged $10; vehicles with three-or-more individuals will be charged $20. RV’s and other oversize vehicles will be charged at $40, due to the use of multiple parking spots. Vehicles will be issued wristbands at the entrance gates for the corresponding numbers of individuals inside the vehicle. Parking passes can be purchased on the UHSAA GoFan online ticket portal at or purchased at the gate. A convenience credit card fee will be charged as part of the purchase. There will be no cash option for purchase. It is advised for everyone to prepurchase parking passes to allow for faster parking and entrance into the facility.  


All meet results will be posted live to the Internet. As soon as a runner crosses a timing point, those results will be posted live to the results page. We expect the time interval to be less than 10 seconds between the runner crossing a timing point and the result being displaying on the results page. Timing points will be located at the 1-mile, 2-mile and the finish line marks. Results at each timing point will display both the individual positions & times and team positions & score.  When results are posted live, at this point they are still unofficial. Once the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals of the top three finishers are displayed at the top of the Overall Full Results page, the results are considered official.  Results can be found on the RunnerCard website.  


Races will be run consecutively in the following order. Times listed are approximate:   

 1A Girls...10:00 am            6A Girls...10:30 am                                                                                       1A Boys...11:00 am            6A Boys...11:30 am

Assistance to Competitors 

Coaches, please educate the members of your team, their parents and others that will come to support your student athletes that per rule 9-7-4 it is a disqualification for a competitor who receives any assistance from another person. The most common form of the violation of this rule is when a non-competitor runs along side a competitor during the race (pacing).  This has been a problem in the past. It would be unfortunate to have to disqualify a runner for the actions of someone not in the race. Please help by informing those who will be there to support your team. Also, any runner who assists another runner will also be disqualified.
