​At the Portage Invite we prioritize the safety of our runners, coaches, volunteers and broad community of support. It is with your safety in mind that we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Portage Invitational. We have been monitoring current trends and recommendations regarding COVID-19 and believe this is the best decision to keep everyone safe and healthy. We will miss hosting you all this year and look forward to the 2021 Portage Cross Country Invitational.


While many things have been cancelled this year, our love of running and our love of cross-country has not been. The Portage Invite is committed to supporting the sport of cross-country this year and into the future. We will look for unique ways to uplift the sport and runners including continuing our Senior Scholarship Awards for 2020 and partnering with incredible athletes such as Dathan Ritzenhein, Olympian and the Portage Invite course record holder, to bring you inspiring messages to keep you running! Check for updates on our social media - Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter or check out our website www.portageinvite.com!


The Portage Invitational is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting the sport of cross-country to inspire youth participation; to deepen the emotional connection with the sport; and to grow the sport through increased awareness and event excellence.
