It is MANDATORY that a participating school in the JO Classic be a member of their state's official high school athletic association. The JO Classic is sanctioned through NFHS, AHSAA, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Any other state wishing to particpate should contact Coach Johnson asap.
* To determine Varsity Division, we follow the standards of the AHSAA, therefore out of state private schools must multiply enrollment by 1.35% (grades 10-12).
* Junior High Division classified as grades 7-9.

























 




















Races will be timed by electronic chips. Entry fees should be paid before electronic chips are picked up.

Division Entry Limits
** The Gold Division is limited to 7 runners max. Remaining runners must enter Red Division or 
the division that is subject to your school size. (See Eligibility Chart)
** The Silver Division is limited to 7 runners max. Remaining runners must enter Red Division. 
(See Eligibility Chart)
** You may also divide your squad and run in the Silver and Gold Division. ($65 per Silver and $65 per Gold)
** Entry fees apply for all divisions. $65.00 per division, plus $30.00 for Red Division. If a team does not have enough runners to fill a team, the fee charge is $15 per individual runner not to exceed $65 per division. And, if a team enters a division but enters an individual in another division, the fee charge is $15 per individual runner not to exceed $65 per division and $30 per "B" team division. 
**If a school has only one runner per division, the fee is $15 per that individual runner.
