Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and the city of Nashville’s phased reopening plan, the TSSAA has made plans to move the 2020 Cross Country State Championships to Sanders Ferry Park in Hendersonville.
The championships will also take place over two days, Nov. 5-6, instead of the traditional one-day event in order to allow for safe social distancing. The complete schedule is included below.
