OHSAA Early Season Invitational 2024

Obetz, OH

Meet Information

Online Registration Instructions

The OHSAA Cross Country Early Season Invitational is your chance to preview the State Championship course and experience the championship environment. Whether you are trying to motivate young athletes or prepare your veterans for the postseason, this invitational is your chance to do both.

This season, registration is a streamlined one-step process in MileSplit. Coaches will no longer need to register for the meet in MyOHSAA and then register on MileSplit. In addition to the new one-step process, coaches will sign their required verification of uniforms and sporting conduct electronically in MileSplit while registering for the meet and will not need to sign a paper copy at packet pickup.

There will be a slightly different schedule this year with two additional races added vs. last year. These additional races have allowed us to remove the school participant caps we have used in the past, ensuring all of your athletes can participate. See below for the meet schedule

More information on the event can be found on the OHSAA Cross Country Website.
