2017 NIRCA Cross Country Nationals Location Announced

February 2nd, 2017

NIRCA Cross Country Nationals returns to Forest Akers in East Lansing, MI on November 11, 2017.

NIRCA has reached a commitment with Forest Akers Golf & Cross Country Course for a return of the Cross Country National Championships to East Lansing, Michigan on November 11, 2017.  Forest Akers is the home course for Michigan State University and hosted the 2014 NIRCA Cross Country National Championships.

This will be the twelfth NIRCA Cross Country National Championships and second at this site.  In East Lansing in 2014, NIRCA saw 1129 participants cross the finish line with the men of Indiana University and women of University of Michigan taking home the top honors.  With over 1500 participants in Hershey in 2016, the expectation is an even bigger and better event in 2017.

Details will follow in the coming months as the Race Management team begins planning and development of the event.


Ben Bartley, NIRCA
