The 1000m is a unique distance, just enough endurance to stretch your 800m runners, with enough speed to challenge those more suited to the 1500m/1600m. Cross Country doesn't do much to predict your strength at this speed event, as new names seem to pop up each year once Track begins. We wanted to dig deep into the rankings, to find out which program has ruled the event.
We pulled in the Top 4 runners All-Time of every team in the state, and combined them as if they were a relay. Then we ranked the Top 50, to see how things would shake out. Fayetteville-Manlius took home third place in both the boys and girls categories, to be the best combined program, but can you guess who took home the overall title in each gender? Find out below.
