CU women’s cross country earns at-large bid for NCAA Championships

After placing fourth at the NCAA Mountain Region Championships on Friday, Nov. 15, the eighth-ranked Colorado women’s cross country team earned one of the 13 at-large bids to advance to the NCAA Championships, Saturday, November 23, in Terre Haute, Ind.

This will be the 11th consecutive trip to the national championship for the women. In the last 28 years, they have only missed advancing to NCAAs once.

The No. 3 CU men automatically advanced to nationals after placing second at the region championship, qualifying for their 28th straight national championships, which is the longest active men’s streak.

The NCAA Championships will be held at LaVern Gibson Championship Cross Country Course for the 12th time in 16 years. The women’s 6-kilometer race will start at 9:15 a.m. MT and the men’s 10k will follow at 10:15 MT a.m.
