Angel "Flight" Cross Country Meet
We invite you to participate in our 2nd 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 flights,
first in ones 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 flow of competition, lead changes, and
what is needed to win!
Course: on the IWA Training site at Our Lady of Corpus Christi (1200 Lantana
St, Corpus Christi, TX 78407)
