Indiana All Star Club Post-Season XC Overview


Since 1998, our club organizers have coordinated teams of young runners in training for and traveling to State, Regional, and National cross country competitions in their schools' post-season. Every year, from October to mid-December, runners from all over central Indiana come together as one team, forming life-long friendships and fostering principles of sportsmanship and team camaraderie.

Nike offers their Nike Cross Nationals team and individual competition with very tough qualification races and all-expense-paid trips to Portland, Oregon for the top high school teams in each of eight regions. It is a very big accomplishment for our high school teams to qualify and earn the trip west.

In addition,
USA Track & Field offers their Junior Olympics program each fall with a three-level tournament. Competitors are divided by two-year age-groups and compete in State, Regional, and National competitions.
