PRESENTS:

THE RRCA NATIONAL XC (5K) CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

 

The 10th annual Ready for Fall? 5K is also the RRCA National Cross Country Championships in 2016. This event is held on the cross country course at Milliken & Company's Arboretum, home to nearly a dozen previous national cross country championships.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A RRCA MEMBER TO RUN THIS RACE.....ONLY FOR THE TEAM COMPETITION!!

Traditionally, cross country teams and individuals use this event to gauge their training heading into the fall cross country and road-racing season. Others enjoy the option of running the all-grass course -- the exact course used for the annual Eye Opener Cross Country meet hosted each fall for high school and college cross country teams from across the Southeast.

This year we’re honored to be the Road Runners Club of America’s National Cross Country Championship. As such, this year the event will also be a TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP for RRCA Club Teams only.

Team championships in these divisions (Male & Female teams) will be crowned:

  • Open: 5 scoring members, maximum of 7 runners, all must be 39-younger, all must be of the same gender.
  • Masters: 4 scoring members, maximum of 6 runners per team, all must be 40-older, all must be the same gender.
  • Grand Masters: 3 scoring members, maximum of 5 runners per team, all must be 50-older, all must be of the same gender.

NOTE: To be eligible for the Team Championship, runners must be 2016 members of a registered RRCA Club and that club will need to verify membership. Masters and Grand Masters runners can run for teams in younger divisions, but can not be members of two teams. (A Masters runner can run for an Open team, but not both an Open and Masters team, etc.)

Every runner who registers receives a technical T-shirt and a chance at numerous awesome door prizes.
