Meet Information

Angel "Flight" Cross Country Meet
We invite you to participate in our 1

st Annual Angel Flight Meet. The Flight Score Meet is a unique variation of
traditional cross country. This rarely used, but distinctive format is very appealing to coaches, runners, and fans.

Runners do not start together as an entire team, rather a single numbered runner from each team competes head-to-
head with the same numbered runners from the other teams, i.e., all of the number five runners from each team

start at the same time in one “flight,” then all the number fourth runners depart in a second flight a few minutes
later, then the number threes, twos, threes, and finally the ones. Scoring is based on finish position within each

flight, first in one’s flight equals one point, second equals two, etc. An exciting aspect is the posting of race-by-
race scoring updates during the action – showing the ebb and flow of competition, lead changes, and what is

needed to win!
