About This Activity
The Chrisman Cow Chip Classic Cross Country Meet has been in existence for over 30 years! Chrisman’s home cross country course is behind the school and in part of a cow pasture – hence the fun name for the annual meet. We do our best to pick up all of the “cow chips” before the race starts, and all of the cows are put away in the barn so that humans and cows never find themselves nose to nose in the middle of the course!

The high school meet is one of, if not the only, FLIGHTED cross country race in the state of Illinois. What does that mean? All of the runners of the same “rank” in pecking order on their respective teams race against each other. So, all of the #7 ranked runners on each team will race against each other first. Next up, all of the #6 ranked runners on each team will race against each other, and so on. This race is a student-athlete favorite not only because of the unique way that the runners compete against each other, but also because of the fun name. The rolling hills on the course also make it a little more interesting and challenging as compared to most other courses in the area.

The 5K cross country race for the public will start at 8am, prior to the high school meet that starts at 9am. The public will run the same grass course as the high school runners. It is a hilly and will be more challenging than a flat, road course.

Event details and schedule
Please be sure to check in with us by 7:30AM on the day of the race. Registration will close promptly at 7:30AM so that we can prepare for the race start at 8AM.

Please bring your own water, Gatorade or other drinks so that you stay well-hydrated. It will likely be hot and humid, despite the 8AM start time. Due to the grassy terrain, there will not be any water or Gatorade handed out along the course.
