The prestigious Guilderland Invitational has hosted some of the best teams in Section 2, in NYS, and the nation. It provides an exciting preview of the fall season! If you have plans for attending the NYS Federation Meet in November, then our course will prepare your runners, as the two courses are similar in terrain.
This course is designed with challenging terrain, gorgeous trails and open field running and is spectator friendly. We have eliminated our steep, long downhill, formerly known as "suicide hill". The varsity course is 2.86 miles. The freshman course is 1.7 miles. The modified course is 1.5 miles.
