ShawnH, wtf. You write books on running and didn't know how a XC meet is scored? Please stop posting your running wisdom and political rants on letsrun.
You don't need to know the rules of XC in order to write knowledgeable books about running in general.
"In some competitions the 6th and 7th runner are scored in the overall field and are known as "pushers" or "displacers" as their place can count ahead of other runners."
I thought this was the norm...
