This Saturday, February 7th, is the USA XC Championships, being held in Boulder, CO. This will be a very unique event, and will give our athletes a chance to see the sport of cross country being contested by professional athletes at the highest level possible. We plan to travel together as a team to Boulder on the 7th. Please make transportation arrangements with your teammates, or parents, to meet in the MVHS parking lot at 7:00 a.m. that morning.

We do plan on participating in the HS 4K race before the elite races. This is open to all HS athletes that want to take part. Afterwards, we will stick around to watch the professionals race at a chance to qualify for the World XC Championships.
