The meet will be held at West Windsor Fields in Princeton, NJ, the same course used by Princeton's varsity cross-country teams. The 2008 NCAA Mid-Atlantic Cross-Country Regionals were held on this course. It is very flat and entirely grass, with one road crossing. Spikes are permitted.

Manual timing and scoring will be used. There is no limit to the number of runners teams can bring, but only the top 7 will count for scoring. There will be traditional cross-country scoring (top 5 score, 6th and 7th displace).


Top 2 teams and top 10 individuals, men and women


Will be posted on NIRCA's website on Saturday night.


Water will be available for runners.
