Championship race day ends with a gala banquet.
Images of the week's events play constantly on a giant screen as
athletes, officials, media, friends and families eat dinner. Then
the races are re-run from edited tape of the production crews. Awards
are presented to the All Americans (top 15 in each race), the regional
team champions, and the individual national champions. Finally,
the parents are dismissed and the 64 runners dance away the rest
of the night before Sunday morning flights home.
