Save the date - Brea XC Invitational returns on October 4, 2014

The Brea XC Invitational will return on Saturday, October 4, 2014 at Carbon Canyon Regional Park in Brea.  Last year 27 schools and nearly 1000 runners participated in this unique format.  The races for each level (Boys FS, Boys Var, Girls FS, and Girls Var) are further broken down into individual races that pit the #1-2 racers, the #3-5 runners, and the #6-7+ runners against each other.  This gives runners at all levels and abilities a shot at running near the front of the pack.

We have limited capacity at this venue, so please register early to reserve your spot.

Registration will be available through Episports beginning on July 1st.

Links to a flyer with race info, past results, a course map, a location map and the weather report are listed in the side bar to the right.

Please note that "team time" and not "place scoring" was used for this meet since each level consisted of 2-3 races and all runners were not racing against each other.

Thank you to all the participants, supporters, and most of all the volunteers that made this event possible and successful. We hope to see you again next year!
