The Colorado cross country teams kick off the 2017 campaign on Sept. 1 at the Colorado State Ram Invitational in Fort Collins.

The Buffs announced their schedule on Wednesday and it looks very similar to past seasons. After Colorado races at CSU, the Buffs will have almost a full month to get prepared for their only home meet of the season, the Rocky Mountain Shootout on Sept. 30.

Colorado will then head to Louisville, Ky. for the NCAA Pre-National Invitational on Oct. 14. Postseason action will begin on Oct. 27 as the Buffs will prepare to defend their Pac-12 team titles. Oregon will serve as the host this year.

NCAA Mountain Regionals will be in Logan, Utah on Nov. 10. The season will culminate on Nov. 18 at the NCAA Championships in Louisville, Ky.
