For track we know a day or two before a meet who is in what race and what heat/flight athletes are in. But, for XC (I am talking about Jesse Owens and other large meets where there are different divisions) we never know what race teams let alone individuals are in until we get there. It would be helpful for coaches and runners to know this a day or so in advance. Knowing that there are over 200 teams at Jesse Owens doesn't really tell us who is in what race-especially when teams enter different individuals in different races. Is there a reason this information is not made available a day or two before race days?

It often just depends on the Meet Director and the timing company. Some meets, such as the AUM Warhawk XC Challenge did provide an entry list beforehand ( [url=http://al.milesplit.com/meets/323483/info#.W7Vy1vZFxPY]http://al.milesplit.com/meets/323483/info#.W7Vy1vZFxPY[/url] ).
