Nov. 14, 2013
WASHINGTON - George Washington's men's and women's cross country teams will compete at the NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional on Friday at Goodman Campus Cross Country Course in Bethlehem, Pa.
The men's 10,000-meter championship race begins at 12:00 p.m., followed by the women's 6,000-meter championship race at approximately 1:15 p.m.
The NCAA Mid-Atlantic Regional, along with the eight additional regional competitions held around the country, will serve as a qualifier for the NCAA Cross Country Championships (Nov. 23) in Terre Haute, Ind. The top two finishing teams on both the men's and women's side will automatically advance to the NCAA Championships. The remaining teams will remain alive for 13 at-large bids.
Additionally, the top four individual finishers that are not on qualifying teams will advance to the NCAA Championships.
Last year, the GW men's team finished in 20th place, while the women's team finished in 21st place. Both teams will be racing on the Goodman Campus Course for the second time this season after competing in the Paul Short Invitational in October.
