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!   The races are divided up by gender and grade with a race each for boys and girls in grades 1st thru 6th.  Races will start every 5 minutes.  Each runner represents their elementary school.  We have had over 700 runners from 47 schools participating!  Cascade Elementary in Orem, UT was the winning team last year and took home the huge traveling trophy for the year!

Parking - Please park in the large lot west of the Football Stadium.

Course - All of the elementary school races are held on the BYU Campus Cross Country Course.  The 1-Mile Races start on the grass field just north of the track.  We have redesigned the course to allow parents to be able to take photos of the start. The finish line will be on the blue track in front of the stands.  Parents are NOT allowed to run on the course with the kids.  Members of the BYU cross country team will escort the children in the races which will start every 5 minutes. Click here for the Course Map to review with your child. 

Registration - Registration is only $5.00 and will only be processed on the web.   Click here for on-line registration.    Pre-registration will close at noon the day of the race.  After that time we will be processing the registration and preparing the bib numbers for each child.  Late registration at the track is $10 each.  Please PRE-register!  Admission to watch the races is free.

Check-In - Check in at the Pavilion just NORTH of the track. Runners should arrive 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of their race to allow time to check-in and pick up their bib number. Do not be late, as you could miss your race!  Please pin bib numbers to the FRONT of your shirt only!  Then, make your way to the starting line area at the field just north of the track.

Awards - Ribbons will be given to the top10 individual finishers in each race, and will be presented immediately following each race.  Elementary school teams that have at least 3 participants in that age and gender will qualify for team scoring.  Points are awarded to the top 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 The Triple Crown Champion and receives stewardship of the Championship Trophy until the next year!

Timing - Timing and results by Rocky Mountain RunnerCard.  Each finisher will receive a personal RunnerCard at the end of the finish chute.  Results will be displayed on the main scoreboard at the track and web-posted that same day at RunnerCard.com.  Results of the races from previous years are available here. 20152014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 20062005, 20042003, 2000, 1999.
