My daughter just entered sixth grade and is excited to get the cross country season started. As an fellow ms-hs runner so am I. I just found out that our town did away with gendered races in an attempt to be more inclusive they have done away with gendered races. There is just two a Varsity and JV split down the middle regardless of gender. The races are still scored by gender, plus an “open” category to please certain virtue signalers. The fast girls will almost certainly never get a chance to win a race. Mine is just starting out but it’s a bummer that she might not have that opportunity. Is this common anywhere else? Is this, dare I say, a title nine violation?
