Serving Kentucky's Schools and Student Athletes Since 1917

10/22/20 – Cross Country Regional Reminders

October 22, 2020 Cross Country Blog Updates


Coaches and athletes are reminded of the following for the 2020 regional meets: 


  • All regional meet managers have adjusted schedules to limit the amount of time on the starting line.
  • Each region will have athletes report to the starting line 5 minutes prior to the official start time of the race. 
  • Athletes must report to the line wearing a mask and remain wearing it until instructed to remove it by the KHSAA official. The mask shall not be discarded or handed to any individuals. 
  • There are to be no further run-outs once athletes have reported to the line 5 minutes prior to the start of the race. All warm-ups are finished when an athlete reports.  
  • Clerking will take place at the starting line for all regionals. 


  • Athletes are strongly encouraged to quickly exit the finish line area as soon as feasible. 
  • If spectators are allowed, there must be a restricted area at the finish that keeps spectators away so they do not interfere with the “quick exit” of each athlete. 


  • Results will not be physically posted at the regional site. All results will be sent via email to coaches and the KHSAA. The KHSAA will post on the website when finalized. 
  • Please contact your regional meet manager for any plans for awards/trophy pick-up.
  • State Qualifiers will be released on Sunday, October 25th.
