Last Chance XC Championships

Sunday, November 12, 2023

Oak Ridge Park

136 Oak Ridge Park Road

Clark, NJ 07066

The tri-state area is a hotbed for distance runners. The competition is fierce, the courses are hard, and the weather is unpredictable. After months of training, many cross country runners, of all grades and abilities, don’t ever get to post the cross country PR on Milesplit they deserve.

Until now.

The Last Chance XC Championships is the perfect opportunity to PR on the fastest 5k course in New Jersey: Oak Ridge Park. With a double-loop, pancake flat course, cheering crowds, loud music, oversized medals, personalized bibs, and free action pictures, runners will have no choice but to PR.

There will be three team champions crowned: boys (3/team), girls (3/team), and co-ed (4/team: 2 boys, 2 girls). Times, not places, will determine team results, Schools that enter more than three runners will be assigned teams based on finish times (top 3 = A Team, Next 3 = B Team, etc).

Since November 12 is the last day of the NJSIAA cross country season, this is a sanctioned high school event by the NFHS. No clubs are allowed in the high school 5k races.
