Hermitage, TN

Meet Information

Coaches Please read ALL information.

ATTENTION: This is a high school race only!

New: The course will be open on Friday, August 30th from 4:00 pm -7:00 pm. This is the only time runners may come to the Hermitage course without facing security. 

New: Parking for the Voyles will be handled the same as last year, except that the Hermitage staff will be handling the duties. To help cover the cost of this, the MSCCA asks drivers to donate to the parent workers who will be holding buckets near the parking areas. 

Important changes this year please take note:

VOYLES CLASSIC: Saturday, August 31, 2019

Entry Deadline: Monday, August 26th at 10:59pm

The race will again take place at:

The Hermitage

4580 Rachels Lane

Hermitage, TN 37076

The Hermitage and its course are located on private property, so no one is allowed to run there outside of the preview course day and race day. The MSCCA will set up a date in August (week of the race) leading up to the Voyles allowing teams/runners to preview the course. This information will be e-mailed to coaches in July.

To race in this event, your team MUST be a member of the Midstate Cross Country Association.

No entry fee (covered by MSCCA dues).*

Association fee is due day of race.

Go to midstatexc.org for fee information.

We will have disposable chip timing this year! A professional timer from the Knoxville Track Club will time both of our large MSCCA races. While this is great news on many levels, all participants must be aware that if you cross the finish line without a chip, you will not have a time or place.

* At the coaches meeting in November, it was voted to assess an extra $1.00 per runner fee for schools that register more than 40 runners at the Voyles and/or MSCCA championships. Please bring this money to the Voyles and turn it in at the registration table.

When registering online, please only enter runners who will be participating. We typically have 200-300 runners registered who do not race. With disposable chip timing, this is a very large additional, unnecessary cost. Thank you for working with the Association on this.
