Greetings Cross Country Coaches:
Welcome to the first annual "Randolph Invitational" at John Hunt Cross Country Park. As most of you may know, the course is popular with the athletes, being an extremely fast course, as it's the same course from the "Running Lane National Championhips" and the ever popular "Southern Showcase". This will be the same course as the AHSAA Sectional Championships in late Ocotber as well as the NCAA Division 1 South Regional Championships in November! This will be a great oppurtunity for your athletes to get a fast time and huge confidence before their sectionals/state championships in a couple weeks! Don't miss out!
