Driven by the love of sports.
Welcome to the second annual “Randolph Invitational” at John Hunt Cross Country Park. As most of you already know, the course is popular with the athletes, being an extremely fast course, as it’s the same course used for the “Running Lane National Championships” and the ever popular “Southern Showcase”. This will be the same couse used for the NCAA Division 1 South Region Championships in November! This will be a great opportunity for your athletes to get a fast time and a huge boost of confidence before their sectional/state championships a couple weeks later. You definitely don’t want to miss out!
PROMO VIDEO: Please share with your kids and families to get them excited for the “Randolph Invitational”! RANDOLPH INVITATIONAL PROMO VIDEO
