Best Answer

In a varsity race, the first five runners on a team score. Each runner that crosses the finish line scores their place for their team. The five runners' places are totaled and that is the score for that team (so if a team's runners placed 1, 8, 10, 15 and 18, their score ould be 52). The team with the lowest score wins.
