Why do we continue to rank Cross Country when it is meaningless? There are runners who run on challenging 5K courses every year while others run on short, flat courses and then we compare the two. For the past five years I have been telling you and even proving that the infamous Bob McIntyre Twilight meet is actually 2.84 miles but we continue to include this short course in the rankings and it isn't the only short course. If you have the need to rank cross country runners could you at least rank them on the same courses? At least this way, everyone is being ranked on equal terms. Rich
