Nike Cross Nationals 2013

words // Adam Arthur

Ready to compete against the best cross-country runners in the nation? Nike Cross Nationals is your opportunity.

Started in 2004, Nike Cross Nationals consists of eight regional qualifying events (NXR) and a national final (NXN). Any runner who competes for his or her high school should be eligible to compete at a regional event, as part of a club or as an individual racer. Each regional event has a championship race that qualifies runners for NXN. The national final is held in Portland, OR, with a chance to compete for the coveted Winged Goddess of Victory statue.

With many of the regional races celebrating their 10th anniversary, each event looks to be extremely fun, competitive, and unique. From the courses to pre- and post-race events, which could include a freshman/sophomore race, community race, pre-race dinner, dance party, or professional athlete guest speakers, each event is sure to be packed with fun, athletic activities.

Eastbay has been a proud sponsor of NXR and NXN since 2006.

    My son participated in the Northeast XC Nike race in Wappinger Falls, NY. He received one of the coveted hats, with the neon yellow pompom. Our dog grabbed it today and destroyed the pompom! Is there anyway to get another hat??
    Thank you,
