SEE INFORMATION UPDATES BELOW - as of November 4

WAIVER / RELEASE that all competitors should have signed and brought to meet.

USA Track & Field - New England is part of a team working to host the first-ever Massachusetts Middle School Cross Country Invitational.

There is no organization that deals with middle school athletics in Massachusetts, so despite there being a very active cross country programs in those grades, there is no capstone event to the season.

Devens, the former Fort Devens just off of Route 2 near Fitchburg, was selected as a site due to its easy access from around the state, the plentiful parking, and the supportive staff at the site.

This meet will mirror those held in New Hampshire, Connecticut,and Rhode Island in providing opportunities for middle school runners in grades 5-8.

The meet is open to all schools - public, parochial, private, and charter - and home schoolers in those grades are welcome to compete as well. This is a school-based competition, not club-based.

A first time event, the format is still evolving; check back here for updated information.
