Can Boys and Girls Run in the same race?

It looks like the Monroe Invitational ran one varsity race with boys and girls running together. http://www.finishtimingresults.com/2018/08-20-MON/

Rule 4 in the Cross Country Manual says they may run together and scored separately as long as coaches agree to it beforehand.

Small JV meets and most dual meets we always combine the 4x800 and the 3200. I like it for 4 reasons.
(1) it saves time- but not that important
(2) it makes the race bigger and not so small
(3) it pushes the top girls
(4) it pushes the JV boys to try and beat the girls

Win-win for everyone involved. Except for a JV boys ego sometimes.

Not sure if it still applies but the old rule was that if a girl ran with the boys and was a scoring runner she was not eligible to run in girls races the rest of year

The girls had separate scoring. No girl scored on a boys team. If you look at the meet results, the first three girls finished 49, 50, 51 but were scored as 1,2, 3 in the girls race. http://www.finishtimingresults.com/2018/08-20-MON/

It was cleared by OHSAA. It was also due to weather coming in. They were separate scoring but just ran together. Dale Gabor says it is no different than track just that all coaches must agree to it.

Finishtiming brings up the other part of that rule that people forget about. The conditions for running combined events are 1) all coaches must agree, OR 2) the referee must determine that it is necessary.

If weather is coming, the referee has the authority to run things together even without coach's approval if he/she determines that it is necessary.
