"The 2017 USATF Cross Country National Championships will draw the top runners from around the country to run for bragging rights in the heart of Bend, Oregon at the Rivers Edge Golf Course. The course is sure to send the fittest athlete home with the title and the cash! The USATF Cross Country National Championships will utilize the best cross country running terrain in Central Oregon to see which athletes are at the top of their game. The National Championship racing will play out at Rivers Edge Golf Course which played host to the 2013 USATF Club Cross Country National Championships. Although the course is largely the same in terrain we have made some key updates to enhance the athletes experience."
The championship races include Open Men’s and Women’s 10Ks, Junior Men’s 8K, Junior Women’s 6K, Masters Women’s 6K, and Masters Men’s 8K. You must be a member of USATF to enter these championship races. You can join USATF HERE ($30 for a 1-year adult membership, $20 for youth 18 and under). In addition, there will be a Community 4K race, and a 4 x 1K Beer Relay. These events do not require a USATF membership, though the relay will require a strong stomach!
