NEW THIS YEAR - BOATHOUSE JACKETS TO THE 4 WINNING TEAMS!
Somers is located about 45 min. north of VCP, 15 min from Danbury, CT, and 1:45 South of Albany.

It had been thirteen years since Somers HS hosted a XC race until we constructed new trails in the summer of 2001. Join us for the 10th Annual Big Red Invitational. Run your Varsity and JV squads together so you can figure out who your top seven are. The course is a beautiful, 5000m course, with some challenging hills and is entirely on trails and grass. Come check out one of The Hudson Valley?s premier XC courses.

COURSE

Scoring
Top 5 score and top 7 displace. Athletes not in the top 7 will not displace other athletes. There will be JV scoring out of the varsity race. All athletes not in their team's top 7 will count toward JV. You do not have to clarify who is JV and Varsity. In the girls freshman race, 3 girls will score as a team, with 5 displacing.
