Dirt Dogs Cross Country Series

Cross Country Archives

Living under these unprecedented times during this Coronavirus crisis has definitely been stressful on everyone, and I fully understand the frustration regarding cross country and track and field events at all levels from the youth, high school, college, open and masters being cancelled everywhere.  While serving as your USATF San Diego President, I have heard from many of you inquiring about the status of our 2020 USATF San Diego Dirt Dog Cross Country Series and what potential opportunities might still exist in the future for athletes to salvage some type of competitive opportunities here in San Diego. 
Unfortunately, due to the fact there are continual closures of San Diego County Park facilities and combined with USATF San Diego priority for us to all remain healthy and safe, we have postponed this year's USATF Dirt Dog Cross Country Series until January, 2021.  We understand this news is disappointing, but we remain committed to offering a 4-event modified Cross Country Series in January and February, 2021.  I am setting the deadline of December 1, 2020 to either proceed ahead or cancel this series all-together based on whether site permits will be issued before or by that date.  As always thank you for your ongoing support.
Just know we remain committed to our ongoing mission to provide Cross Country opportunities for open and masters athletes in San Diego in the future. Personally, I remain committed as your USATF San Diego President to continue serving toward this mission to the best of my ability. 
Please stay healthy and take care of yourself always. Many blessings to you all.
