  • Course Inspection

    The General Manager of National Trail has granted permission for state qualifying teams and individuals to inspect the cross country course at National Trail the Thursday and Friday only prior to the State Tournaments from Noon to 5 p.m. There is no admission charge on these days.

       On Saturday, the course is available for inspection from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and between races.

       Inspection may take place after a race starts when the last contestant in the race has passed. The course must be cleared for the next race five minutes prior to the scheduled start of the race. Public address announcements will be made regarding inspection times. Failure to abide by inspection regulations could result in disqualification of contestants.

  • Team Camp
    Tents and competitor camps are permitted in the open grass area inside the Pass Gate. The camp area is adjacent to the south end of the Starting Line. Contestant restrooms are available in the designated team camp area. Please clean your camp area prior to leaving the facility.

  • Prohibited Items
    The presence of pets and recreation equipment at the State Cross Country Tournament will not be permitted. Frisbees, footballs, baseballs, softballs and dogs are prohibited (exception: registered service animals). In addition, no fences are to be climbed at National Trail Raceway. Individuals that violate this regulation will be requested to leave with no refund of the admission fee.

Important Travel/Parking Information
During the 2011 Cross Country Championships there was major traffic congestion, so the OHSAA has worked with local officials to combat this problem. Please follow the instructions below in order to expedite the parking process:

  • If you are coming from the east, take Exit 126 off I-70, turn right onto Lancaster Road (State Route 37), then in one mile turn left onto National Road (State Route 40).
  • If you are coming from the west, take Exit 122 Outville Road (State Route 158), then in one mile turn right onto National Road (State Route 40). Note that school transportation vehicles coming from the west should proceed to exit 126 so that they park in Lot A for participants.
  • Some GPS systems instructed people coming from the west to proceed past National Trail and get off at Exit 126, Lancaster Road. This caused a huge backup. Please Exit at 122 if you are coming from the West except for school transportation vehicles (see previous note).
  • Recreational Vehicles will be directed to Gate B from Route 40 to park inside the National Trail facility; allowing for tailgating. $9.00 admission will be collected at Gate B.
  • Parking Note: The parking lots are grass and can become muddy during inclement weather. Plan and dress accordingly!
