This meet is open to all teams. Per MHSAA rules, no MHSAA team can compete against Homeschool teams. We are aware of this rule and for this reason, there will be two divisions (blue and gold), with MHSAA teams running in the gold division and Homeschool teams running in the blue division. MAIS teams will be split between the two divisions for balanced fields. No MHSAA teams will be running against Homeschool teams.
The registration fee is $50 per team with a $100 maximum per school or team. Boys and Girls are considered separate teams. Unattached runners will be $15 each. Younger runners can participate in the open race if their team is registered in the varsity races otherwise they will pay the varsity fees to run the open race.
