Race Information

Andalé Preseason Cross Country 3.1 & 1.5 Mile Invitational

Saturday, August 6th – Andalé Preseason Cross Country 3.1 & 1.5 Mile Invitational. This race is geared toward all middle, high school, and open/coach runners in the Midwest, specifically the Kansas City Metro Area. There will be three divisions with men and women competing separately. This is a way to test your fitness coming into the start of the Fall Cross Country Season. You will represent yourself, not your school. No team scores. The plan is to grow this into the largest preseason cross country meet in the Midwest.

For an additional $5 – Hear me out on this…

People used to call me granola. I am a huge proponent of Leave No Trace and that extends to what you take with you from the race. Not everyone wants a shirt and I don’t want to order one, have energy and materials used and wasted in production and shipping, just to be left in a drawer, thrown away, or end up in a landfill. This way you have the option of deciding for yourself if you really want one or not. No big deal.


There will be medals for the Top 3 Men and Women in each division and ribbons for all other finishers.
