The venerable Foot Locker Cross Country national championships will happen in San Diego, California this weekend. So will the USATF Club XC Championships and the Junior Olympics, all in different parts of the country!
If you are stuck in the snowy Midwest, or on the East coast, you will be able to see most of the events on your laptop, iphone or i pad. Walt Murphy provides the information below for your viewing pleasure.
If you are in Metro NY, you can always put on the racing shoes and run the Peter McArdle Memorial.

Pete McArdle Classic-Van Cortlandt Park,NY 11:30am http://www.nyrr.org/races/
Sponsored by the NY Road Runners, this is a low-key event named
after one of the running legends of NY. Born in Ireland, Pete McArdle
became an American citizen in 1962 and represented the U.S. at the 1963
Pan-American Games, where he won the gold medal in the 10,000 and the
bronze in the marathon. He also finished 23rd in the marathon at the
1964 Olympics in Tokoyo, was a 3-time U.S. Champion at 10,000-meters,
and the 1962 U.S. X-Country Champion. He collapsed and died in 1985,
at the age of 56, during a run at his beloved Van Cortlandt Park. (From
his NY Times obituary)
