Attention Cross Country Coaches:

Tates Creek High School and the University of Kentucky would like your team to join us as we will be hosting the Bluegrass Cross Country Invitational on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at Masterson Station Park in Lexington. This meet will be run by both Tates Creek High School and the University of Kentucky. It is truly a joint effort between both programs. We are looking forward to a great day of racing. If you have any questions about the meet please do not hesitate to email me at

Course Info:

The course is faster and more spectator-friendly than other layouts at Masterson Station Park. The finish is by the soccer fields to provide a natural amphitheater with tent city on the hill between the finish and parking. The runners will begin in the start field before heading down through the soccer area before a climb up the main hill in the park. After completing the hill loop, they will finish in the soccer field area. If a spectator stayed by the soccer fields, they could see the runners for 2 miles of the 5k race. It is an excellent spectator course.

We have measured the courses repeatedly to ensure the correct distance. They are accurate and incredibly fast! Come see for yourself!!
