MORE ON FIYA VIRTUAL XC
Due to the restrictions in place in Los Angeles County, FIYA’s 2020 Fall Cross Country season went completely virtual! FIYA Virtual XC requires runners to actually run the courses we have laid out but they do it on their own, at anytime during the open competition period. Our courses are carefully measured out and uniquely designed at various parks and recreation areas spread vastly throughout Los Angeles County so that we can accommodate as many schools geographically as possible.
All in all, our Virtual XC program is designed to provide an outlet for our school communities to gather safely outdoors, at beautiful locations, on your own schedule with your own safety precautions - all to enjoy each other’s company while competing against other schools’ cross country runners through FIYA’s virtual cross country meets.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
FIYA is open to ALL elementary and middle schools for participation. NO High School students are allowed to compete in FIYA. We divide the competition based on grade levels as listed to the right in red.
NOTE: A student-athlete can compete as part of the school team or individually if there are not enough student athletes at your school interested in competing. Students are also allowed to run in older divisions, but are prohibited from running in lower divisions than their age group.

Division 1 = 8th Grade & Below
Division 2 = 6th Grade & Below
