So, comparing results from state last year it appears that we have two drastically different strategies when comparing Class A and Class AA.
In Class A, we had 22 runners get out sub 5 for the first mile (fastest being 4:52) and then have serious positive splits the rest of the way. Only 4 had positive splits of less than 20 seconds per mile over the last 2.107 miles (including first and second).
In Class AA, we had 45 runners get out sub 5:10 for the first mile (fastest being 5:04) and then the top runners actually got faster over the last 2.107 (including the top finishers).
So, with that said and the potential addition of a couple of the top A runners – how will the race change at state if at all?
