2021 Cross Country Season Is Underway!

Fall and cross country.

They go together like peas in a pod.

After last season stretched more than eight months from August to April, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we’re back to the normal, three-month foray, which began in late August for both the NAIA and NJCAA and continues in earnest this weekend for those athletes and teams in NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III (In fact, NCAA DI and NCAA DIII both started on September 1; NCAA DII followed just one day later on September 2).

From The USTFCCCA InfoZone: Meets & Results

We’ve already seen results from several meets, but the lion’s share will occur this weekend. After all, we count more than 70 in the USTFCCCA InfoZone right now (If you ever know of any meets that we don’t have, feel free to let us know via email or social media).
