IMPORTANT!  PLEASE REVIEW THE MEDICAL POLICY AND INFORMATION ON OUR WEBSITE! The top priority of our medical staff is to respond to life threatening medical emergencies.Non-life threatening/minor injuries (example: scraped knees, minor cuts, etc.) may be treated if resources are available and time allows.  Serious injuries take precedence and will be treated first.

SAFETY GATE
This year at the Mt. SAC Cross Country Invitational we will continue using the "Safety Gate" system which will ensure the safety of our runners while at the same time lessen the burden on our medical staff. Any runner who, in the opinion of our medical staff is "struggling" or showing any signs of "distress", will be removed from the course and not allowed to finish. This is a precaution meant to protect your runners. We appreciate your support.

SCORING
The first five runners of a team will score.  The 6th and 7th runners on each team will displace.  Teams who finish with fewer than 5 runners will not be calculated in team scoring.  Results will be available approximately 25 minutes after the last runner finishes.

TIMING
We will once again be utilizing chip timing from Finished Results. If you have any changes YOU MUST REPORT THEM PRIOR TO THE RACE START TO THE PROBLEM SOLVING AREA LOCATED AT THE SOUTH END OF THE FINISH CHUTE. All runners must wear the bib and chip assigned to them or they will be disqualified.

SOUVENIR RFID CHIPS will once again be used. YOUR ATHLETES CHIP IS A SOUVENIR THEY MAY KEEP AFTER THEIR RACE. There is a place to record their place and time on it.
