  • Detour Notice - Highway 64/40 will be closed this weekend

    A new interchange at Tower Grove and Boyle is being built and replacing four bridges that span the highway.

    When the interstate is closed on Feb. 1, drivers traveling westbound on Highway 64/40 will have to turn off the highway at Forest Park Avenue and follow it to Kingshighway. Turn left on Kingshighway and enter the park. Follow the signs to Central Ball Fields (#7 on this map) Eastbound travelers will be diverted from the highway at Hampton Avenue (which is where you'd enter the park anyway).

A Vision Realized

Race Director's Blog:
Local Meet Director Ben Rosario shares his thoughts on the storylines heading into this weekend's meet and the huge crowd expected to come out and watch.

We just had our final host organizing committee last night and I'll spare you the hour and a half talk about packet pick-up protocol, course marking and how many hot dogs to buy for the concession stand (750 if you were wondering). Rather, I'll tell you about the 15 minute conversation I had afterward with Chris and Brent from the St. Louis Sports Commission. We talked about all the storylines for this weekend and how this really is shaping up to be exactly what we envisioned two years ago when we won this bid; the best USA Cross Country Championships in the history of the event!



Think you know Cross Country? Enter our prediction contest for a chance to win a pair of Nike shoes courtesy of Big River Running Company! The rules are pretty simple; pick the top five men and the top five women in the Open Championship races. You get 10 points for getting first correct, 8 for second, 6 for third, 5 for fourth and 4 for fifth. 2 points for anyone you had in the top five but not in the right order. You may only enter once. We'll add up the scores after the meet and the person with the highest point total will win a gift certificate to Big River Running Company good for any pair of Nike shoes or spikes in the store. Out-of-town entries welcome...you can claim your prize over the phone and they will mail you your shoes!
