The 14th Annual Indiana Middle School Cross Country Championship...



Saturday, October 4th, 2014


...is presented by Indiana All Star Running Club. We are a not-for-profit organization founded in 2000 by area cross country coaches and running enthusiasts. Our mission is to provide a rewarding championship event for middle school runners, to introduce them to running in a large event prior to high school, to promote sportsmanship, and to encourage the habit of daily running for a lifetime. We believe that running instills discipline, focus, and principles of hard work which inspire people to be the best that they can be in every area of their lives...as students, athletes, friends, family members, and citizens.

Coaches: Please review our event Rules, Eligibility, and School Size information section each season! Changes are sometimes made in response to issues that arise as this event develops and grows. Thank you!

*******NOTE TO COACHES*******

2014 Indiana Middle School Cross Country Championships

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

With the change in the format of the IHSAA high school cross country tournament coming next year to a four week schedule, we at the Indiana All Star Running Club, would like to encourage all of our middle school coaches to “gently remind” their athletic directors that the Indiana Middle School State Cross Country Championships always occur on the Saturday of Week 13 of the IHSAA calendar; and to please keep this in mind when scheduling end of season meets, including conference championships. Thank you for helping us to coordinate our efforts to support conference championships, while also providing the opportunity for athletes to compete on a state-wide basis.

Thank you for your help and continued            support of our event,

                                     The Indiana All Star Running Club

General Meet Information



Who

Open to all Middle School runners/teams who meet the qualifying standard. These time standards are set such that any young middle school runner can achieve them with an honest effort in their training and preparation...regardless of talent level. They are intended to be used as goals and are set intentionally to include everyone, rather than exclude anyone!

What

The largest Middle School CC Meet in America! Four Varsity races contested as Big School and Small School divisions, two Junior Varsity races, and a combined Grades 3-4-5 race.

Where

Northview Church - Carmel Campus: 5535 E 131st Street, Carmel, Indiana (corner of 131st Street and Hazel Dell Pkwy)

When

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

Why

To bring the best Hoosier MS runners and teams together, to acclimate these runners to a large championship race, and to recognize the efforts of remarkable coaches!


Team Rules, Participant Eligibility,


and School Size Information



  • If an athlete’s Middle School does NOT offer Cross Country as a team sport, and they compete during the season for another Middle School, then those athletes may compete as a member of that team. IN ALL OTHER CASES, all individuals on a team must attend (or feed into) the same Indiana middle school…no exceptions!
  • Teams may enter more than seven individuals per team in the Varsity races if those runners are all varsity-caliber runners. Top 5 score. Only seven individual trophies are awarded to All-State teams. 
  • No "B" teams are allowed in the same Varsity race.
  • This is an Indiana Middle School Championship. As such, only student athletes who are enrolled in Grades 6, 7, or 8 in a school located within Indiana's state boundaries may participate in the four Varsity competitions. This includes those who are home-schooled, legally reside in the state of Indiana, and are currently at the 6th, 7th, or 8th grade level.
  • If a participant is found to not satisfy the above requirements, they and their team will be disqualified.
  • Any 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade runners who wish to "run up" are welcome to participate in the Junior Varsity competitions.
  • Home-schoolers competing for a team must have run for the middle school they're entering with this year.
  • Runners entered in JV races serve as alternates. 
  • Small School = 425 or less in grades 7&8 combined.
  • Big School = over 425 in grades 7&8 combined.
  • Small Schools can move up!
  • Big Schools may NOT move down!

Varsity Qualifying Time Standards

These are time standards which we believe any young middle school runner can achieve with an honest effort in their training and preparation...regardless of talent level. They are to be considered a guideline, not a hard and fast rule, for coaches to follow:

Individual

Small School Girls - 14:30
Small School Boys - 13:30
Big School Girls - 13:30
Big School Boys - 12:30

Team (top 5 add-up times)

Small School Girls - 72:30
Small School Boys - 67:30
Big School Girls - 67:30
Big School Boys - 62:30


Protest Policy

Due to concerns voiced in past years, we have instituted a Protest Policy for any coach who feels compelled to challenge a school's size division entry. Any challenge must be presented in the following manner:

  • The challenge must be made in writing to Club Co-Directors Kelly Wire or Matt Wire at least two hours before the start of the meet (start time of the first race).
  • The challenging coach must include a basis for the challenge.
  • The event organizers will handle any protests according to the full policy*.



Registration Procedure/Entry Deadline

All registration for this event is conducted online at: 

click here to register online at Get Me Registered

Payments are made by credit card. 

Note: Please contact service@getmeregistered.com for all registration process issues or call the staff at GetMeRegistered at 317-846-0078, ext 611.

Coaches:

  • You must be prepared with your school's combined 7th and 8th grade enrollment on a day (of your choosing) between the opening and closing of this registration. You will be required to submit this number and place your teams in the appropriate School Size Division. 
  • Please exercise care when typing athletes' names, as all names on event merchandise will be printed from a registration download.
  • You are registering these kids for the event when you complete the process, not a particular race. We do not need to know which race the kids intend to run. So long as they line up and compete in the appropriate race, everyone's happy. It is up to the coach, parent, and/or athlete to make sure they do this. We will just score the runner for whatever race the chip assigned to them crosses the line!
  • Event merchandise is not included in the price of registration. It will be for sale on event day.

**All entries must be completed online by 9:00 a.m., Wednesday, October 1st, 2014 in order for athlete names to appear on event merchandise.

 USATF Sanctioned Event

*Full Protest Policy: Following the submission of the challenge, one of the aforementioned club representatives will phone or approach the challenged coach and ask him/her to verify their submitted 7th and 8th grade combined enrollment numbers during the stipulated timeframe. If the coach indicates their enrollment to be 425 or less within the aforementioned timeframe, we will take his/her word and request the principal to send us a letter verifying the enrollment as having met our qualifications. If time allows, this will be required prior to meet day.

We will not change awards once they have been awarded (due to an enrollment challenge), but if verified prior to the awards ceremony,we will disqualify any school that competes in the incorrect race. If Indiana All Star Running Club does not receive the requested letter from the challenged school's principal confirming "small school" status within 30 days of the meet, we will request the school submit a letter from their school principal confirming small school status prior to allowing registration for future meets.
