Forest Park Cross Country Festival 2007

Saint Louis, MO

Meet Information

The Forest Park Cross Country Festival is back! In 2006, this meet saw more than 1,100 athletes from 44 teams compete in a meet unlike any other in the St. Louis area. Athletes, fans and spectators were treated to a first-class presentation of our sport the way it should be- FUN! A spectator-friendly course, competitive fields and a meet announcer bringing the action to life made this meet one of the best in the Midwest in 2006. The 2007 edition is going to be bigger, better and should solidify the Forest Park Cross Country Festival as a premier meet in our area and across the region. Once again, the meet will be sponsored by Big River Running Company and hosted by St. Louis University High School . New this year will be a first-rate meet program with full results and records from 2006 as well as pictures from the inaugural year. We will also have team trophies in all divisions, and there will be extra divisions if necessary. The 2007 course will remain the same (European Style 2k loops) and the schedule of events will remain similar though upon the request of several coaches the junior varsity boys will run 5k this year. Team entry fees will remain at $60 for a boys or a girls team with a $100 fee for schools entering a boys and a girls squad. New this year will be additional fees for extra teams of seven in the junior varsity and freshman divisions. Each additional team of seven will require a $20 payment and each additional individual runner beyond seven in those races will be $5. Schools will still be able to run nine runners in the varsity races.
