OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss men’s and women’s cross country teams will resume competition this Saturday when they travel to Nashville, Tenn., for the Commodore Classic.
The race will feature a 6K race for the women, while the men will run on an 8K course for the first time this season.
The men’s race will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will feature 24 schools, including seven members of the SEC. The women will follow at 9:45 a.m., and the field will include 25 schools, eight of which are SEC participants.
“This will be our first opportunity to race against SEC competition as well as other top regional teams,” Head Coach Brian O’Neal said. “Our teams are looking forward to going to Vanderbilt to compete.”
Both teams are hoping to improve after solid starts in the first meet of the season at the Brooks Memphis Twilight Classic. The women are ranked No. 8 in the South Region by U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association heading into the second meet of the season.
The meet will be held at Nashville’s Percy Warner Park, which will also host this year’s SEC Cross Country Championships on Oct. 26.
