2013 BYU Triple Crown
Elementary School Races

BYU Campus Cross Country Course
Clarence Robison Track, Provo, Utah

Wednesday, September 18, 2013



We invite all elementary school youth to participate in the BYU Elementary School 1 Mile Races.  You do not have to be from Utah Valley or even the state of Utah to participate!  Each race is run on grass and finishes on the track.  The races are divided up with a race for each gender and each grade.  Members of the BYU cross country teams will escort the children throughout each race.

Last year's races were a wonderful success with over 700 runners from 47 schools participating!  Westridge Elementary again won the team trophy!   Click on the Results links below to see the full results!

The campus cross country course for the kids races is a 1 mile course that includes the BYU Track and the warm-up field north of the track.  Races will start every 5 minutes on the grass.  Each runner represents their elementary school. 

New Course!  We have redesigned the course to allow parents to be able to take photos of the start.  The start line is on the grass field to the north of the track.  Click here for Course Map.

Elementary school teams that have at least 3 participants in that age and gender will be recognized if they place in the top three schools in each race.  To earn points toward the team scores in a race, a school must have at least 3 runners in that race.  Points are awarded to three schools in each race.  The first place school receives 5 points, the 2nd place school receives 3 points, and the 3rd place school receives 1 point.  The school with the most points after all of the races is crowned the Champion and receives stewardship of the Championship Trophy until the next year!

Results of the races from previous years are available on the RunnerCard site.  2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 20062005, 20042003, 2000, 1999.

Races - Pre-registration will make check-in go much faster.  Runners should arrive 30 min. before the scheduled start time of their race to allow time to check-in and pickup their bib number.  Do not be late, as you could miss your race!  Kindergarten children or younger are welcome to run with the 1st graders of their gender.  Parents, family and friends are NOT allowed to run on the course with the children.  Members of the BYU cross country team will escort the children in the races. 

Awards - Ribbons will be given to the top 10 finishers in each race.  The overall traveling Team Trophy will go to the elementary school that scores the most points in the meet.  Three athletes per gender and grade from a school are required for the team to be considered in the team scoring.  Individual awards will be presented immediately following each race.

Timing - Timing and results by Rocky Mountain RunnerCard.  Each finisher will receive a personal RunnerCard at the end of the chute.  Results will be displayed on the main scoreboard at the meet and web posted that same day.
