Carlisle High School Cross Country Course. The course is exactly 5000 meters in length, is clearly marked with permanent signs at every turn and at every 500 meter interval. The course is entirely mowed grass and offers a mixture of flat and hill running. The start will offer open, unobstructed running for several hundred meters with excellent mobility throughout the entire course. The course is a little affected by even the most extreme adverse weather conditions. It provides an excellent surface for spikes or flats. It is also an excellent spectator course and offers easy race visibility for about 4000 of 5000 meters. The course has been the site of NCAA regional and national cross country finals. It was described by an out-of-state coach from a nationally ranked team as one of the top high school courses in the USA.
