California is the only state that has has more than one champion who ran one of the 11 fastest times. All three of those runners were from our North Bay League. Two of those runners were from the city of Santa Rosa. Of the two fasest times from both the San Diego course and the Orlando course the NBL produced two of the four times. The three fastest times ever run by girls from the west team were all from the North Bay League.

Elsie Allen’s Celedonio Rodriguez has gotten our boys represented with his 18th place finish in 1998.

Balboa Park in San Diego has served as the most frequent venue for the national championships. The course is winded in a figure-8 fashion through the Morley Field portion of the nearly 5.0 km² park. There is no shortage of hills and mounds, which makes this course the definitive cross country course. (Although the San Diego venue has always been Balboa Park, the Championships in 1979 and 1980 were run on a course other than Morley Field—a course on the western edge of Balboa Park.)

The Orlando course was extremely flat, but deceivingly slow in terms of runners’ times. Patches of grass and sand were scattered throughout the flat, 5,000m course.
