Course / Route Map
The course begins on a 400 meter wide-open straightaway before making a very gentle 180 degree turn. The runners then continue on the east side of the top of the field. On the first and last loop of every race runners will take the shorter path toward the very north end of the field where they will then make a left and run parallel to the road before heading into the pine tree section. As the runners exit the pine trees they will have a slight climb before heading back down along the prarie grass on the west side of the course. This section rolls before reaching the far southwest point of the course just past the one mile mark. Runners then climb a slight hill before once again reaching the top of the fields. If they are on their finishing loop they will then have about 400 meters to the finish. If they are continuing on they will head toward the middle of the fields where they will re-join the loop. The only difference for 2nd, 3rd, 4th,and 5th loops (depending on the race distance) will be a right hand turn about 500 meters into each loop that takes runners downhill toward the far northeast point of the course followed by an uphill that takes them back onto the same path as the first loop.
Results of past runs for all runners are available at our USA Cross Country Championships Results page.
