Largely depends if the race is OFSAA sanctioned and what rules the local race has in place. OFSAA rules do not govern any Invitational Races that are not sanctioned. They do cover the qualifiers. Case in point, the Trinity Invitational in Port Hope is open to "any high school runner that wishes to compete." Transfer athletes who have been deemed ineligible for transfer have competed in this race in the past.
Similarly, if the adult is a guide runner for an athlete with a intellectual / physical condition they are permitted.
I have known coaches to jump in races locally, although they usually don't cross the finish line - that seems odd.
What I want to know is whatever happened to the very "unofficial" OFSAA Coaches race?This post was edited by NC Blogger 1 week ago .Quote comment

"Does ofsaa allow adults in tune up HS xc meets?
a meet in Brampton had a single adult running with the seniors. (she placed top 5 LOL)"
Why is this LOL? Great job for her getting out and attempting to still be competitive and set a great example for the younger ones around her. This type of stuff should be encouraged more often. Quote comment
