9/5/2015 will go down as the first true weekend of competition in Illinois as the vast majority of Illinois teams and individuals shed some of their summer training in return for quality performances. Cross Country season is indeed in full effect.

For the first time in MileSplit Illinois history, we will have live coverage at three different venues simultaneously. That's right, this Saturday there will be a team blanketing the state: Granite City Invitational in the southern sector, The John Kurtz Early Invite at Fenton as well as the Hinsdale Hornet-Devil Invitational. MileSplit Illinois will bring top notch footage from all three sites.
