Message from Meet Management:

Welcome to the 2020 adidas Cross Country Challenge! 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 2019 edition of the event marked the 8th year of this edition of this long standing event in the Raleigh area (previous the Wolfpack Invitational). With the championship cup award being added to the meet, 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 2019, the Championship Cup was awarded to Weddington High School (Matthews, NC) who claimed the award for the second time by winning the Girls Championship and finishing 3rd in the Boys Championship races. The question for 2020, is there a boy’s and girl’s team that will challenge the reigning champions as the outstanding program?

We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2020 adidas Cross Country Challenge on September 18th and 19th.

A special thanks is given to adidas for their support of this event and the sport of running.
