AUGUSTA — There will be high school cross country state championship meets this fall in Belfast, the Maine Principals’ Association announced Friday.

Troy Howard Middle School will host the boys meets for Classes A, B and C on Nov. 11. The girls will then race Nov. 14. The MPA also announced it is working to provide a live-stream of both races.

Qualifying for the state meet will be done at the league level, similar to golf. The MPA said regional championships won’t be held in the pandemic because of the state’s COVID-19 regulations that limit public gatherings to a maximum of 100 people.

The MPA also said leagues can host qualifying races up until Nov. 8. Furthermore, the number of teams and individuals qualifying is subject to change.

Here’s the team qualifying breakdown:
