"We look forward to hosting another great cross country meet this year," said head coach Jeremy Provence. "To be able to race at our home course is exciting. We don't have a lot of opportunities to exhibit our sport to campus friends and family members so there is always a little extra excitement surrounding our home meet."

The 5K collegiate women's race will start at 9:00 a.m., and will be followed by the men's collegiate 8K at 9:40 a.m. A map of the course can be found at: 5K Map and 8K Map

In 2016, both the Harding University women and men won the Invite.
