MSHSAA does enforce the rule and it prohibits student athletes in cross country & track from running in "organized events" during their respective seasons. It not only affects the individual athlete but can affect the whole team as well if it's not reported and is discovered later. Our high school runners can't run in other worthy events that coincide with their seasons such as the Komen for the Cure 5K, the March of Dimes Relay for Life, and this past weekend we had the YMCA Luck of the Irish 5K which was a benefit for a local scholarship fund. Our youth should be encouraged to become involved and particpate in these types of events - instead, they are being punished.
