Nike Border Clash XI, by Larry Eder



The official Nike Border Clash site, prepared by is

My favorite little big meet is less than 24 hours from fruition. The brainchild of Josh Rowe and John Truax, this meet is all about bragging rights between the states of Washington and Oregon on just who had the best prep cross country runners?

What I have loved about it is its simplicity: Forty top boys and girls from WA and OR duke it out over the trails on the Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.

We have just arrived in Portland, Oregon and the rain is coming down. The course should be nice and wet, good for cross country racing! Who will have the bragging rights this year? No one will know until tomorrow morning, when the boys race goes at 10 am, and the girls at 10:45 in the morning!

We will provide results and coverage of the races on twitter as well as a full discussion of the race on tomorrow night! Until then, check out the videos and features on the official Nike Border Clash site!
