The 2014 adidas Cross Country Challenge will mark the 21st annual edition of the cross country meet, which returns to the WakeMed Soccer park located in Cary, NC again this year as part of the adidas Golden Stripe Series. One of the largest cross country meets held in North Carolina, the adidas Cross Country Challenge looks to showcase the top North Carolina teams, along with some top ranked out-of-state teams, in one of the premier early season meets in the southeast.
Message from Meet Management:
Welcome to the 2014 adidas Cross Country Challenge! On behalf of adidas and meet management we would like to thank all the teams and their athletes for attending this year’s event. This event represents an early season test of the long weeks of summer training that have laid the foundation for the challenging cross country season that lies ahead. We hope that this event provides a fun race setting that also serves the athletes in preparation for the latter portion of the season.The 2013 edition of the event marked the 3rd year of the new edition of this long standing event in the Raleigh area. In addition to becoming part of the premier adidas Golden Stripe Cross Country series, the meet continued the Championship Cup. With this award, the top boys and girls program coming from the championship race is recognized with this unique trophy cup that will remain with the team for until the following year. In 2013, the Championship Cup was awarded to Blacksburg High School (Blacksburg, VA) for the second consecutive year with their dominate performance, finishing 2nd in the Boy’s Championship and 1st in the Girl’s Championship Races. The only question that remains for 2014, is there a boy’s and girl’s team that will challenge the reigning champions?
We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2014 adidas Cross Country Challenge on September 19th and 20th.
A special thanks is given to adidas for their support of this event and the sport of running with the establishment of the Golden Stripe series of events.
