Michigan Independent High School Championships (MiHS)

For teams that are not M.H.S.A.A. Tournament Eligible — this is your chance to compete for MiHS All State Individual honors and for the Team Championship and Runner-Up Trophies.

Beginning in 2011 Allendale High School hosted the first ever MiHS State Championship in the sport of cross country. The field has expanded from four teams to 10 with plenty of room for growth.

It is held yearly AFTER the conclusion of MHSAA Regionals on that date (typically the last Saturday in October) and it is in no way related to that event.

Plaques are awarded to the Champion and Runner-Up programs of each gender. Medals for the top fifteen MiHS All-State finishers are awarded as well.

Cost: Cost is $10/runner for the first eight runners and then $3/runner. Maximum of $150 per organization. There is NO DAY OF REGISTRATION for this event. Athletes will be timed and results posted on-site and on-line.

There is also a $6 per person admission charge to the grounds that day, maximum of $15 per car, so car pool.

Who is eligible: any program made up of kids in grades 6th-12th enrolled in a high school program but who are not at a school that offers MHSAA Cross Country. If you have athletes who attend a school where the sport is offered, but for some reason they are not part of their school team, then they may NOT run in this event. They are welcome in the Post-Regional Open Meet (PROM) which is an open race. Likewise your K-5th athletes are welcomed in the PROM Race but should not be entered in this race. However, 6-12 grade MiHS students MUST run in the MiHS Championship & not the PROM (New in 2019).

You can run as many kids as you have — you are not limited to seven and you do NOT need to pre-declare scoring athletes.

This is intended to give a championship meet to athletes who could not have participated in the MHSAA Tournament because of the school that they attend.
