Stop what you are doing. Take a minute and breathe in. Do you smell that? The scent of cross country is in the air! The Pete Glavin Cross Country series kicks off in just a few weeks, with the first race taking place in Clay Park outside of Syracuse.
The official dates are:
Sunday, September 10th – Clay Park, Syracuse
Sunday, September 24th – Akron Falls Park, Akron Falls
Sunday, October 8th – Watkins Glen, Ithaca
Sunday, October 29th – Genesee Valley Park, Rochester (also serving as the USATF Niagara XC Championships)

The team will be supplying food, drinks and camaraderie after each race. As always, the winning teams get a case of good beer, and individuals can choose from great snacks for placing in their age groups. Join us for another fun year of eating mud and kicking grass!
On a related note, USATF Club Cross Country nationals are being held on December 9th in Lexington, KY. Roadkill Racing sent a team in 2014 and it was an absolute blast. Please let your captain know if you are interested in participating!
