Her time of 13 minutes and 39 seconds was faster than any other winner, boy or girl, at the state meet. But on that late October afternoon, Seidel's run was among the easier of her major wins. After all, it was exactly 1, meters shorter than those other victories.
In all other states, girls and boys run the same distance. All of these states race at 4 kilometers except for Oklahoma, which races at 3. Texas recently moved its two largest classifications to 5 kilometers while keeping its smaller classes at the 3.
That discrepancy doesn't sit well with Seidel. It seems like they were in the dark ages when they made that rule. Connecticut's girls ran the 4K distance untilwhen its coaches voted to move up to the 5K. The advisory board votes on various rules and regulations every season, and any potential changes are brought directly to the athletic or activities department, where they are again reviewed and voted upon.
In some states, that process can take up to two years. I know [changing the girls' distances] was brought up seven or eight years ago. If our member schools wanted to change the distance, we'd get it approved. ESPNHS reached out to the cross country representatives at each of the 10 state associations in which girls run shorter distances than the boys.
Representatives from Iowa did not respond to repeated inquiries. Every athletic association implied that the state would be open to increasing the distance, provided that the coaches' associations voted to do so.
For coaches, the main deterrent is the perception that it will negatively affect participation numbers. Particularly in smaller classifications, coaches worry that increasing the distance from 4K to 5K will turn away girls who either aren't as serious about the sport, use cross country mostly to train for other sports, or both.
Friedman said some schools were having trouble getting girls to turn out for cross country at all, and schools with smaller numbers were afraid of forcing their girls to run an extra 1, meters every race.

The longer distance means more time spent racing, more training and, simply, more work. But following the move to the longer distance, Friedman said the participation numbers barely wavered. Participation numbers aren't the only reason for skepticism.
