Maryland Track & Trail Invitational

 

…..Where the TRACK finally meets the TRAIL!

Coaches Comments after Last Year

 

 

"The visibility of the runners was better than any course we've ever run on!"


"Our kids had such a blast and the team signs really made us feel welcome."


"The variety of terrain was awesome from the actual grass track to really nice groomed trails."


"If the state meet ever gets moved, this would be the place to put it!"


"Since 3 schools host this meet instead of one, the bar has been raised as to what an xc invitational should look like!"


"You guys even had the bibs with chips....so nice to not have to collect shoe chips!"
