RE: NXN adds individual at large qualifiers

im confused wrote:

how do the at-large bids even work? Do you have to run the NXR or can you just opt out of the regional and still potentially get to nationals?

My understanding is this:
Auto qualifiers still need to run at NXR. In the past there were a certain amount of at large teams that were added...usually just missed the top. Now it will add at large individuals. Top 5 still qualify but there will be an additional 5 individual boys/girls chosen at large from among all areas. So we are NOT talking about kids that don’t run NXR in order to run Footlocker. We are talking about an extra 5 individual spots that will be chosen from individuals that ran at NXR. This might open a spot for say the number 6 individual runner from a really strong regional race.
