THIS IS CROSS COUNTRY

THIS IS DCXC

THIS IS THE DCXC INVITE

2018 Pacers Running DCXC Invite presented by New Balance

Saturday, September 29 in Kenilworth Park 

THIS IS THE
ALL RUNWASHINGTON TEAM

Our sister media company, RunWashington, selected the area’s top coaches – the RunWashington Coaches Panel — to name the pre-season All-RunWashington Cross Country Team, the 62 best cross country athletes across Northern Virginia, DC, and parts of Maryland.

By bringing together the top coaches from all over the region, the panel served as an opportunity for coaches to share ideas and knowledge about the sport, competition, and how to support each other and other regions.

THIS IS THE SPIKE

Well, it will be. It’s a secret.

The custom, All-RunWashington spike is the top-end cross country spike made by New Balance.  There’s only two ways to get your hands on one:  be chosen as one of the top 62 runners as a member of our All-RunWashington Team or win one of eight varsity-level races at the DCXC Invite on September 26th.
