Location

Directions: Nerstrand Woods State Park is located just west of Nerstrand, MN, or about 10 miles south of Northfield. Take Highway 3 or Highway 19 into Northfield. Follow State Hwy 3 to the south side of Northfield, than follow the signs to get on State Hwy 246. Go south on 246; you will turn east and then south again. You will reach an intersection where 246 turns east again going towards Nerstrand; instead, go west 2 miles to the park. Once inside the park, watch for O-Meet signs. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Volunteer

It takes a few volunteers at each of the meets to make our O-season successful. We've been doing this for a long time, however, so the process and duties are pretty streamlined.  If you're interested in volunteering, please let us know.  All volunteers run for free that day and also receive a free entry to the next regular meet.
