HOW DO YOU QUALIFY?
Automatic qualifiers into Nike Cross Nationals from the NXN Regionals: The top two placing clubs in each gender of the Championship Division race at each NXN regional will earn automatic berths to NXN in Portland. Additionally, the top five placing individuals who are not on automatically placing clubs will advance to NXN as individual qualifiers.
At-Large qualifiers into Nike Cross Nationals from the NXN Regionals: A total of four at-large club berths per gender will be awarded. Clubs placing either third or fourth in the Championship Division race at each NXN regional will move into a pool of clubs receiving consideration for advancing to NXN as an at-large qualifier. A committee of experts will determine the at-large qualifiers.
Greatest weighting by the committee will be given to third-place clubs from the Championship Division race at each NXN Regional who defeated any eventual NXN Regional Champion in prior weeks. In order for this weighting to be employed for the third-place clubs, the victory must have occurred when at least five club members from the eventual NXN regional championship club competed in the same race as the aforementioned loss.
Limited parking will be available at the Meet site and at Faith Community Church located next to the course.
Buses can drop off participants but all bus parking will be at The Woodlands High School Parking Lot, and a shuttle service will be provided for drivers & coaches to return to the meet location. Spectators in private vehicles can park at The North Harris County College Administration Building which is located on the North side of Research Forest Drive (at the intersection of Shadowbend Drive) and is about a 2 block walk west to the course.
