USA XC Championships, January 18, 2020

USATF San Diego-Imperial Association hosted the USA Cross Country Championships for Seniors (open), Juniors (under 20), and Masters (40+) at Mission Bay Park on January 18. 2020.  The top men and women in the Senior and Junior Championships qualified to represent the U.S. in the 2020 Pan American Cross Country Cup in Victoria, BC, Canada, on February 29, 2020.

The races were run over a spectator-friendly, European-style 2,000-meter grass loop running along East Mission Bay Park, just south of the San Diego Mission Bay Resort.  The terrain of the first 1,000 meters of the loop is primarily flat and fast; however the second 1,000 meters includes a series of five small hills.
