About the Series

Founded in 1968 by Don Wahle and Barry Binkley, the Summer Cross Country Series was a way to get the high school and college runners ready for the Fall Cross Country Season. It was held during the last 6 weeks of Summer.

In 1987, Stacy Osborne took over as race director of the series with support from the Clifton Track Club now known as the Runners’ Club of Greater Cincinnati.

In 2001, the series moved from its original location in French Park to the Princeton Community Middle School in Sharonville. Stacy increased the number of runs in the series and attendance rose.

In 2009 the series moved to Loveland High School with Mike Smith becoming the Head Cross Country Coach at Loveland High School.

In 2011 the Series moved to Valley View Nature Preserve by Pattison Elementary School for a more central location and to run the course used for the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Meet.

2011 was Stacy Osborne's 25th and final year as race director of the Series.

In 2013, the series moves to a new location and at Summit View Park. Stacy Osborne returns as race director in 2013 after a one year hiatus, no better paying offers and his failed attempt at making it in a Beatles Tribute Band.

In 2014, the series moves to a new location to Lower Millcrest Park as the iconic course designed by Stacy Osborne at Summit View Park was turned into an unintentional steeplechase with a .25 mile trench and a new location needed to be found.

Comments: Times recorded were for the Top 3 Males
and those who had a bib and did not get lost. 
No females were recorded as the race director 
believes it will motivate them to run faster.
If you want your time for posterity, either run
faster or get a bib.  You can get one at the 
finish line before you run.
Bib is good for all races in the series or until 
it stops working whichever comes first.
