USA Track & Field - New England will be hosting the second Massachusetts Middle School Cross Country Invitational.
There is no organization that deals with middle school athletics in Massachusetts, so despite the existance of very active cross country programs in those grades, there is no capstone event to the season. USATF New England is filling that gap.
The meet moves to Tewksbury at the town's recreation fields for 2010, with good support of the recreation department officials. It is several miles off of Rt 93 (Dascomb Rd. exit). Parking is plentiful, though directly at the course. We strongly recommend carpooling.
This meet provides an opportunity for middle school runners in grades 5-8.
It 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; individuals will be representing their schools.
The format will be the same as last year - boys and girls races for grades 5/6, grade 7, grade 8, and a team 'championship' race.
There will be only one team race each for both boys and girls.
The summary of the event - entry, schedule, times, awards - is at Meet Information page.
This will be updated regularly so please check this site.

We appreciate your interest and support of this groundbreaking event.
