Cross country tryout information

By Sports Information

TORONTO - Tryouts are being held for the Ryerson Rams Cross Country 2017-18 team on Sunday, September 10th at the Longboat Island run. Anyone who is a current full-time student with U Sports eligibility is encouraged to attend and help add to our growing program. The entry fee for the tryout is only $5 and this will cover bib number registration, award eligibility and the post-race picnic. The women will be racing 5km and the men will be racing 10km. Women will start at 10:45am and the men will start at 11:15am.

As we are a competitive team that competes in the OUA, there are certain standards that need to be met in order to actually be selected for the team. These standards are:

Womens 5km: 21:30 minutes
Mens 10km: 37 minutes

If you feel these standards are reasonably attainable for you at the tryout but haven’t contacted Head Coach Albert Dell’Apa about your intention to attend the try out at the Longboat Island run, please contact him at

Both the Eligibility Verification Form and the Medical History Questionnaire and Participant Waiver need to be completed prior to arriving at the tryout.
