Entry into the Varsity "GOLD," "CRIMSON," and "BLUE" Races
The concept behind creating three varsity races was to allow more schools to participate in a championship-type race with schools of similar sizes and abilities with more trophies and medals on the line. Therefore, the "CRIMSON" (6A/5A in Kansas) race was designed for the larger schools and the "BLUE" (4A, 3A, 2A, 1A in Kansas) race was designed for the smaller schools. The "GOLD" division is reserved for the top teams from the previous year's large school divisions or exceptional small school teams. We will allow coaches to request their division. You must complete the request for division in 2017 form by Wednesday, September 6th. The Games Committee will make the final decisions concerning divisions and post this at www.kuathletics.com by noon on Wednesday, September 13th.

The GOLD division is intended for most large sized schools, very good mid-sized schools, and elite smaller schools. Most teams here have placed in the top ten of the larger classes in their state or have placed top-20 in the Rim Rock GOLD Division or top-10 in the CRIMSON Division in 2016.
The CRIMSON division is intended for some large sized schools, good mid-sized schools, and strong smaller schools. Most teams here placed in the top-30 of the CRIMSON Division or top-5 in the BLUE Division in 2016.

The BLUE division is intended for developing large schools, many mid-sized schools, and most small sized schools. In Kansas terms, these schools are mostly 4A and smaller. No large school JV teams may compete in the varsity BLUE division.

JV and C -Team Races
You must race your varsity team in the varsity races, your JV teams in the JV races, and your C - Team in the C - Team races. The JV races will be divided into two sections, a "GOLD" JV division and a "CRIMSON AND BLUE" JV division according to team placement in the varsity division, without exception. The C - Team race will combine teams from all divisions and limited to the first 30 teams.

Inclement Weather Policy - Bus Lot B will be closed if the ground becomes too saturated from rain or if there is a possibility for the ground to become saturated. There will be a designated drop off/pick-up area at the entrance to the property of Rim Rock Farm. Alternate bus parking is available adjacent to the East Lawrence turnpike exit. (Entrance to the parking lot is at the stoplight of "3rd St" and "KTA Entrance", across from Burger King)

Inspection of the Course
The course will be available for inspection on Friday, September 22nd, 2017 from 1-6 p.m. (weather permitting).

Course Markings
The running path will be mowed. In addition, the course will be marked with painted lines/arrows and monitored in specific areas. It is the runners' responsibility to know the course and run the correct path. There have been changes to all courses since last year to make better use of Rim Rock Farm.

Team Tents
There will be designated areas for team tents - please restrict your team tents to these areas only.
