The Sports

Cross Country

Cross Country is a team 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).

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

Distance Track

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 (4x800m).

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