It’s Regionals weekend for college cross country.
Nine regions, two automatic qualifiers each, plus thirteen at-large bids available. Weird stuff can and does happen at these.
Look for my preview of the men’s races tomorrow.
The Rock N Roll San Antonio Marathon and Half Marathon will be run on Sunday in the Texas city.
The FINIBANCO Cross Internacional de Oeiras, an IAAF Cross Country Permit meet, will be held on Saturday in the Portuguese city of Oeiras.
Leading entry: Teklemariam Medhin, who was an upset winner at last week’s season opener in Albufeira.
The second meet in the KCB/Athletics Kenya Cross Country Series will be held in Kipkelion on Saturday.
Also in Kenya on Saturday is the Tegla Loroupe 10 km Peace Road Race, in Kapenguria.
