*FLASH*: 2009 USA XC Championships coming to Maryland

Via letsrun.com poster Joel Carrier...

Greetings: I wanted to end the confusion of next year’s US Cross Country Championships which is scheduled be held at the following location:

Agricultural History Farm Park
18410 Muncaster Rd.
Derwood, MD 20855

For planning purposes we are located in Montgomery County, MD approximately 25 miles north of the District of Columbia. Reagan National and Dulles are within 30 minutes while BWI is within 45 minutes of the course give or take with our famous traffic tie-ups. Most likely the headquarters area will be located in Gaithersburg, MD. I will pass along updates as we progress forward towards the 2009 US Cross Championships. Sorry, for the earlier confusion the entire area is considered the Baltimore/Washington metroplex.

I also want to commend Thom Hunt’s Crew and the USATF for a job well done in San Diego.

Take Care,

No way - that's crazy! I raced in San Diego and it was awesome, albeit I got smoked and demoralized, but it was such a fun time I was looking forward to another trip next year. And now I won't even have to trip it, looks like no excuses for anyone in the area to race!
