About the event

Think you can keep a steady pace, or are you too reliant on your watch? Test your pacing skills at the Catch Your Time Prediction Run!

As part of the NWI Cross Country Preview Event we're inviting all NWI high school cross country athletes to compete in this FREE, fun, and friendly competition to see who has the best internal clock.

Catch Your Time is a 1.5 mile time prediction run where each athlete must predict their finishing time, then run the route with no watch, phone, or other time tracking device. Whoever finishes closest to their predicted time wins. The only indication of your time will be the two race clocks on course that are only visible right as you pass the halfway point and after you finish the route. This run event is for incoming and returning high school cross country athletes in the NWI Region only

• Finish time predictions must be made during online or in-person registration, prior to the start of the race.
• Athletes may not wear or carry a watch, phone, or any other time tracking device with them and may not receive any time coaching from anyone along the course, especially near the finish line. Anyone found to be using a time tracking device will not be eligible for awards.
• The athlete that finishes closest to their predicted time wins.
• Catch Your Time t-shirt (limited sizes and quantities available)
• Tempo Run swag bag with giveaways from event sponsors

The course is an out-and-back on roads, starting and ending behind Catch Table & Tap. It will be well marked with signs, cones, and volunteers along the route to point you in the right direction. A race clock will be visible for a few strides right at the halfway turn around. 

Awards will be given to the top 5 Male and top 5 Female finishers 

I'm not in high school, can I still participate in the run? No, this race is for high school cross country athletes only
Can I just have my phone with me to play music? No, sorry. No phones or other time keeping devices allowed on course
Do I have to commit to a time now, or can I make my prediction later? You must submit a time during registration, but you are allowed to make changes later as long as the change is approved by the head timer and the run has not yet started.
