John Hunt Cross Country Running Park:

It is the old Huntsville Municipal Golf course in the middle of Huntsville that has been transformed into a permanent championship level cross country course.  It is off Airport Road, just 10 minutes from UAH’s campus.


Course description:

The course meets all NCAA championship course specs: 600m to the first turn, and 10 meters wide along the entire course.  It is all grass and is very spectator friendly.  The 5K course is one loop, and the 8K course is a 3k loop followed by the 5k loop.  A great course with gently rolling hills that I think your team will love.  This course was the host venue of the 2020 Gulf South Conference Championship.  Site for the D1 South Region in 2021 and future site for the D2 South Region in 2024.

The entry deadline is Tuesday, October 5th at 9:00 PM.  TEAM ENTRIES MUST BE ENTERED THROUGH DIRECT ATHLETICS AT: Directathletics.com



Team trophies to the winning teams.

T-shirts will be given to the top 20 finishers in each race.

Awards ceremony will begin around 9:15 AM.


We anticipate between 30 and 40 schools.  Our starting line is 100m wide so we will be able to accommodate a large field.


Your team may view and jog the course on Friday, October 8, from 10 am to 6 pm.


If you plan to attend, please email me at caind@uah.edu or call David Cain at 256-824-2222 and I will send you course maps and directions.
