NOTE: Individual entries will be limited to the first 300 qualified individuals that sign-up in each race.
Team Qualifying -
Due to the proximity of high school states meets to the CCCNYC,  there is no qualifying for teams in the 15-16 and 17-18 age divisions. Any team composed of athletes from the same state who are all in the same age group may enter the meet provided they obtain YES-Athletics team memberships and YES-Athletics individual memberships.  CCCNYC will accept up to a limit of 40 teams per race in each division.   The first 40 teams to enter will be accepted.  All teams in the other age groups must qualify through the above qualifying procedures.
If you are unable to complete any of the above qualifying procedures or if you have a question, please contact the Meet Director Frank Miklavcic at fmiklavcic2@gmail.com for a remedy.
Race of the Americas -
The Race of the Americas is a nonqualifying open 800m race designed for those youth ages 8 & Under that want to run and experience a cross country race. Anyone age 8 & Under may run except those running in the Primary 2K race at the meet. All teams participating in the meet will be lining the course to cheer on and encourage these young runners to show them what our sport is truly about!
