1st off, lots of great local content to start off the cross country season! In the past I think I've seen course ratings with time differentials (fast courses, slow courses). I noticed that a lot of runners who ran at the Chandler Invitational and also the Desert Solstice. In general runners improved their times by 30 - 45 seconds (some over a minute). Are there any plans to rate courses by difficulty. I know there can be any number of reasons why athletes run faster at one meet vs. another. I think it's safe to say the Desert Twilight meet is one of the states fastest as about 90% of the athletes set their PR at that meet. It unlikely that everyone peaks for this meet, and I'm not say the course is short, just fast. Thanks, Dave
