About Event

The 2016 Nike Portland XC Invite (formerly known as Nike Pre Nationals) will be held on Saturday, September 24th, at Portland Meadows. Last year's meet drew over 140 middle and high schools and 4200+ athletes from eight states. It was a great day for all involved, and a great day for our sport. The meet continues to be a season highlight for many teams as we offer a festive atmosphere that allows for a wonderful experience for our youth.  New name! Same great meet!

I recommend sending your entry in ASAP by signing up on http://www.athletic.net/ as each division is limited to 25 teams. Please remember to be realistic when entering your team in a particular division (it is rare to see a team score under 100 points regardless of division). Please follow the guidelines below when choosing a division:

Jim Danner Champs: Team that will be top 10 in their state.

Division 1: Teams that will qualify out of their league meet.

Division 2: Teams that will be in the top half of their league.

Division 3: Teams in the building phase of their program.


In addition to the above varsity races, Nike Portland XC has grade level JV races and middle school races. Traditionally, September is a very dry month in Portland, so it is expected that the course should be moderately fast. The top five teams in all varsity divisions receive team plaques and the top 50 individuals in ALL middle and high school races are awarded medals. Additionally, a Nike sponsored athlete will be in attendance to sign autographs and hand out merchandise.


Aloha High School looks forward to hosting your team at the 2016 Nike Portland XC Invite. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
