Well, 18 years ago, we started the Ohio Cross-Country Middle School State Meet and with the help and support of athletes all over Ohio as well as coaches and parents, we have grown from 400 runners that first year to almost 2000 in 2022.
Our goal now is to do the same thing for track and field athletes. Create an event with great competition at a great venue and make it fun, unique, and memorable.
At ohiotrack.org, as well as ohiocrosscountry.org, we believe middle school sports should be inclusive, not exclusive. We don't believe you should make young athletes have to qualify for a state level event. There is plenty of time for that in high school. If you have the want to, we have an event built for you.
Get your teams involved and join us on this journey!
