Galveston Island Beach Run

Meet Information

Dear Cross Country Coaches,

Galveston Ball will be hosting its scholastic cross country meet on Friday, September 8, 2017.

This event is not part of the athletic directors agreement. The entry fee will be $75.00 per team,

per gender. ($150.00 for both)

There will be two divisions: Division I will be composed of stronger 5A/6A schools. Division II

will consist of smaller schools and other large school. If you have a preference, please let me know

early. Both divisions will be divided equally. The course will be on the beach 95 -100 % on packed

sand. We will send a map with details as time gets closer. All timing will be done electronically this


At least 5 student-athletes from the same school must be entered for a team to be considered for

the team title. There will be a limit of 7 - 10 runners per school in each varsity division. This should

help lighten the JV races. All varsity races will be 4 or 5K. This will be determined by the heat. There is

no limit to the number of runners you may enter in the JV and freshmen divisions. Below is a tentative

time schedule.
