The way I've always done my 5Ks (not X/C) - need to know where the mile markers are/would be (more or less):
Beginning (first mile) - get yourself where you want to be in terms of position - preferably via a more even-paced effort than those who rushed off at the outset
Middle (second mile) - hang on in there - bit of tailgating if necessary.
End (last mile) - try to pick the pace up & push on if at all possible. No-one should be passing you at this stage.

of course the last part is a bit more than 1 mile - but I do actually tend to break the race up mentally into three "thirds" as described.
The approach of a 5K runner of modest attainment.....
