USA Track & Field - New England will host the sixth annual Massachusetts Middle School Cross Country Invitational on Saturday, November 8, 2014.
There is no organization that deals with middle school athletics in Massachusetts.
This meet, presented by USA Track & Field - New England, providesa capstone to the middle school season.
The meet will run at a new cross country course at Willard Field in Devens MA. The course is similar, but not the same as 2009
The course is easily accessible off of Rt 2 - Exit 37B.
DO NOT GO INTO RESTRICTED AREAS, AND FOLLOW PARKING REGULATIONS
This meet provides an opportunity for middle school runners in grades 5-8.
It is open to all schools - public, parochial, private, and charter - and home schoolers in those grades may compete.
This is a school-based competition, not club-based; runners' affiliations will be listed as the school they attend.
The format provides multiple races - boys and girls races for these divisions: grades 5/6, grade 7, grade 8, and a team 'championship' race.
There will be only one race planned per division each for both boys and girls. If needed, a second team race will evenly divide numbers.
The 2014 meet is sponsored by the Boston Athletic Association. Participants will receive a commemorative item
We appreciate your interest in and support of this continually-growing event.
