Start out on the grassy open polo field and enter the winding, scenic soft trails of Bethpage State Park. Few small hills, mostly flat and mostly FUN trails! If you're a newbie to trails this is beginner-friendly and as a veteran, you'll love the true cross country feel of 2018's NCAA DII NCAA East Region Championships!

Wearing Your Bib: The mid-torso is the sweet spot for accurate results. Please be sure to wear your bib just above your belly button, right side up, for best read-rates. Do not fold, crumple or cut your bib in any way. It must be visible to onlookers and not get in the way of your arms/legs.
