THE FLATS – After a week off, the Georgia Tech men’s and women’s cross country teams travel to Tuscaloosa, Ala. Friday for the Crimson Classic at Harry Pritchett Running Park hosted by Alabama.  The women’s 5K will begin at 6:00 p.m. ET, followed by the men’s 8K at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The Georgia Tech women’s team will be one of 37 squads to compete, including nine USTFCCCA regionally ranked teams.  On the men’s side, 33 teams will race and 11 of those teams are regionally ranked.

 

The Yellow Jackets are ranked in the South Region with the women at No. 12 and the men sitting at No. 9.
