    What are the standards for a girl to qualify in 5k as National Elite Performance? I saw some listed and wondered what criteria was.


    If you look in the rankings list, you will see the cutoffs (same is true for the different events in T&F and for distances other than 5K). For 5K HS girls, it's:

    MILESPLIT US FIRST TEAM ELITE 18:45.00
    MILESPLIT US SECOND TEAM ELITE 19:45.00

    Obviously courses vary widely in how accurate the distance is measured out, and the degree of terrane difficulty, so unlike T&F, these benchmarks are a bit fuzzy.
