Remember how cool it was running cross country in high school? It still is. The West Side Best Side Cross-Country Series includes several 5K-ish old-school, card-scored races held on many of the same area courses used by today's high school harriers. The run five/score three format encourages runners of all ages and abilities to come out, participate and enjoy an uncommon team bonding experience not found in many modern races. For a low entry fee, team and individual participants receive a retro t-shirt, awesome snacks and a coupon for beer (21 and older only, of course). Come relive your high school glory days or experience the fun of cross country racing for the first time. You know you want to do it!

You will receive a tag at registration with your name and team name (if applicable). This tag will function as your "number" and must be pinned to your shirt.  When you cross the finish line, you will be asked to turn in your tag.  We will post this in the order you finished and use this finisher board as one of two ways to score the race.

In addition, each runner crossing the finish line will be given a numbered popsicle stick indicating order of finish  The popsicle stick must be turned in to the team captain.  The team captain will then place popsicle sticks from each teammate into the envelope given to him at check-in and will complete the information on the front of the envelope.  The completed envelope, along with all the numbered popsicle sticks, will be turned in to the scoring officials.  The scoring officials will verify the information in each envelope to determine the order of finish for teams and individuals.  If you are running the race as an individual, you simply will turn in the numbered popsicle stick to the scoring officials.
