The Teams Committee has defined the qualification criteria for the men’s and women’s open teams for the 2010 XC season. Masters will be selected by the team’s committee based on performance and ability travel to the meet.
The criteria will be similar to years past, with the athletes competing for 4 positions based on points and 3 at large positions based on selection by the teams committee, for a total of 7 positions for each open team (men’s & women’s).
Scoring will use the best 2 of 3 qualifying meets, with PNTF champs counting double.
Athletes need to be CNW Members and be racing in uniform to count a race.
Scoring as follows:
* 1st Place scores 10 points (pnts), 2nd 9 pnts,…..10th is 1 pnt. Above 10th is 1 pt. DNF scores 0 pnts.
Qualifying meets are:
1. Sat., Oct 2: Seattle U Emerald City Open, we are co-hosts, Lower Woodland
2. Sat., Oct. 23 WWU Classic, 10k men, 6k women, Lake Padden, Bellingham (Masters can run USATF 5K champs in Vancouver)
3. Sun., Nov. 7 PNTF Champs, Lower Woodland or Magnuson Park
After PNTF the team will probably run the NW Regional meet to stay sharp prior to Nationals.
