Collegiate Cross Country Regionals and Nationals come to Spokane

Memorable courses and a long commitment to running have scored Spokane two 2013 NCAA cross country events. Check out West Region's best Division II distance runners competing this Saturday, November 9, on the scenic Plante's Ferry Sports Complex. Rain, shine or snow, 24 men's teams and 27 women's teams will be grinding out their best performances, hoping for a return trip to Spokane for the National Championships in late November. More than 370 athletes will be coming from as far away as Hawaii and Alaska to compete in Regionals.

A snow covered course and a high of 23 degrees made for an epic race in 2011 when Spokane last hosted the DII National Championships. Many of the athletes had never seen snow and walked away calling Spokane their favorite city to compete. This year, a new group of runners will be competing for the national title on November 23. The same sentiments are expected this year, no matter the weather.

Entrance for spectators to Regionals is free. $5 will be charged at the gate for the Championship event.
