It's the oldest High School National Meet in the country, and it's turning 40 this year. The Foot Locker National Championships bring ten athletes from four different regions of the country, to converge on San Diego the second weekend of December. There, the best in the Country decide who is the swiftest of them all.
New York, and Van Cortlandt Park, serve as one of those four gateways to Balboa Park. Over the 5K distance, ten athletes in each gender will book their tickets to sunny California. Eleven States make up the Northeast Region, as well as athletes from Washington DC, and oversea territories. We've combed through the entries to bring you who feel safe, keeping an eye on during the race.
