The 5K isn't a distance that's run very often on the track for high school athletes. 

But for returning competitors in 2019 who have run both cross country and on the 400 meter oval, we have taken their best times from each season and compared side-by-side. 

We're not far off from the cross country season--in fact, the offseason has already begun for many programs--so it might be interesting to note how well a performance on grass translates to the track. 

Check out the top athletes in the country who have competed in both--this might be a window into their cross country season in 2018.
