  • You can create your own farewell to high school XCTF such as a letter to the sport or even utilizing the questions in a longer written format.

Email your responses titled Salute to Senior: (name) along with some pictures to The email title is important so your submission isn't lost. 

Please try to use MileSplit photos when possible. If not a MileSplit photo the photographer name and their permission to use said image is required, we cannot use non-MileSplit photos without direct permission from the photographer. Images taken by a family member are obviously allowed as well.

If you have photos on MileSplit you can link them in the email and we'll get a higher resolution version. Please let us know which pictures belong to which photographer. This all helps with managing the great volume of submissions each year.
