The Cross Country Season is upon us, and the athletes around the State are ready to once again toe the starting line. As usual, the goal will be the State Championship, the pinnacle of the regular season for the public schools. In 2021, the NYSPHSAA State Championships will head to Chenango Valley State Park, a full 5K laid out on the golf course dead center the lush terrain. The meet last was held here in 2016, where Kelsey Chmiel (Saratoga) set the course record on race day.
The course has some rolling hills and long straightaways, providing great vantage points, with some difficulty for the runners. We recently took an updated tour of the course, and are bringing you what the layout looks today. We'll also include snapshots of the races from 2016, as we prepare for the harriers to hit the hills once again.
