Cross Country: "Running any distance on any surface other than a track."

Cross Country is a sport that involves running on natural terrain. Cross Country meets include races that can vary between 2 miles in length to 5 kilometers (5k, 3.1 miles). This is not cross country skiing.

The IHSA State Cross Country meet is held in November at Detweiller Park in Peoria, Illinois.

Track: "Running any distance on a track, jumping for height or distance, throwing or using any implement, technique or motion associated with any field event."

Track and Field is a sport with a series of athletic contests where athletes compete in a variety of different running distances on a rubberized running track. Distance Track events include the 800 meter, 1600 meter, and the 3200 meter runs, as well as relay events.

The IHSA State Track and Field meet is held in late May at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois.
