RunBlogRun opines: The USATF Club Cross Country Championships is an important meet. I was fortunate to visit it last year in San Francisco and it is our sport at its purest. Great to see some of our finest competing at the event. Thanks to Tallahassee for supporting the fine event. Cross country is key for the development for middle distance runners and long distance runners.
Congrats to Colleen Quigley, Sam Chelanga, ADP and BAA Performance.
