NIRCA COVID-19 UPDATE: 7/21/2020

The NIRCA Fall Cross Country Championships are cancelled for the 2020 season.

Athlete safety is the top concern at NIRCA events. Venue rules, federal & state regulations, and university policies have mandated restrictions and requirements to the effect that the events cannot be run in a way to minimize/eliminate the risk for runners and spectators.

As this decision impacts club dues and logistics, additional information will be shared with club officers in the coming week.
