Only one sport throws the polls away and lets the athletes decide who the real national champions are. This year, as always, those champions will be crowned on December 5 at the 6th annual Nike Cross Nationals. Eight regional championships – including one held near you – qualify both teams and individuals into one race for all the marbles over the whoop-dee-doos and hay bales at Portland Meadows.
Nike cross nationals is an invitational cross country meet that serves as the unofficial team national championship of United States high school cross country. It was designed to heighten competition between high school cross country teams nationwide. NXN is a part of the Nike Nationals Series, which includes Nike Indoor Nationals, Nike Outdoor Nationals and Nike Web Nationals for track and field. Nike sponsors the event.
Nike cross nationals are happening today in Portland Meadows, Portland.
