11/02/18 – Practice Run for State Cross Country Meet Canceled

November 2, 2018 Cross Country Blog Updates


Attention Athletic Directors, Cross Country Coaches, and fans:

Due to current course conditions at the Kentucky Horse Park, the open practice run for the State Cross Country meet, scheduled for Friday, November 2 from 3:00 – 5:30 p.m., has been canceled. This will allow for the course to further drain throughout the evening to help ensure an optimal participation experience on championship Saturday. Student-athletes who wish to view the course may still visit the Horse Park, but KHSAA staff and officials will be on site completing the set-up process and request that athletes and coaches avoid walking or running on the course.

Coaches should also be advised that the Tent City area is currently flooded and will continue to be very wet on Saturday. The blacktop area within Paddock 1 will be available for placing tents, so please be prepared to secure team tents on that surface.

TeamIP, the official championship apparel vendor of the KHSAA, will still be on site at the park during this time and available to sell merchandise. Portable restrooms will also be available.


The KHSAA staff routinely publishes blog posts to better communicate with its various constituencies and the public. For a list of those blogs, go to
