State Cross Country Meet Reminders

Parking:  Parking will be available at the facilities in designated non-paved fields adjacent to the high school. Please follow school personnel regarding all parking locations.  As in year’s past when inclement weather has immediately preceded the event, the MPSSAA encourages schools and spectators to plan accordingly based on potential impacts to the traditional field parking areas.  


  • Spectators should make plans to car pool as best as possible.  Also consider meeting at the local park and ride and take one vehicle to the school.  
  • Spectators should strongly consider having a 4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle for field parking.  


Course:  Cross Country participants should stay off flagged areas during the course walk in order to maintain the integrity and safety of the course prior to the races. Due to the inclement weather, it is recommended that runners should wear longer spikes in their shoes to provide the best traction.


Tents:  The MPSSAA and meet administrators will be monitoring wind on Saturday.  All tents must be weighted and staked down.  Teams may be asked to drop or take down tents.  A decision will be made the day of the event if tents will be permitted based on wind forecasts.  


Health and Safety:  The MPSSAA has contracted for athletic trainers and EMT’s onsite.  Please make sure all athletes eat and hydrate properly, avoid caffeinated and entry drinks, and have a warm and dry set of clothes for after their race.  


Be Prepared:  Students and Coaches should be prepared when they leave their bus for the weather conditions of the day.  Please have ample warm clothing, the ability to stay dry, comfortable, and hydrated.  The awards ceremony will take place outside near the rear of the baseball field dugout. There will be limited access to any inside portion of the facility, so all coaches and students should be prepared to be outside in the elements for the duration of the championship.
