Cross Country Programs Release 2017 Schedule

RICHMOND, Indiana - Co-head cross country coaches Rob and Claire Hewitt are happy to announce the 2017 cross country schedule.

"We are eager to welcome the team back and get started," said Claire. "We are excited for the opportunities and challenges that this season will bring."

The men's and women's cross country teams will again open the fall season with a 3-kilometer (women) and 5-kilometer (men) pre-season race at IU East on August 25th. The Quakers will then travel to Wittenberg University (Springfield, Ohio) for an early-season invitational (5-kilometer) on September 2nd and then to Purdue University for the Indiana Intercollegiate meet (5-kilometer/8-kilometer) on September 15th.

The Quakers return home to host the 2nd annual Pat Thomas Earlham Invitational (4-kilometer/6-kilometer) on September 30th after over a month being away from Richmond. The squads will then head East over the mid-semester break to the Inter-Regional Border Battle at Rowan University (Glassboro, N.J.) on October 14th for the final regular-season contest (5-kilometer/8-kilometer).

Two weeks later Manchester University will be the site of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) Championships on October 28th. The Maroon and White will round out the year at the NCAA Regional meet on November 11th at Ohio Wesleyan University (Powell, Ohio). 

"It is always our goal to put together a schedule that gives our team the chance to continue learning to race together and develop their talents throughout the season," Rob said. "Ultimately,we will look to challenge the top of the HCAC conference this fall."
