Colorado Coyotes Youth Invitational

Littleton, CO

Meet Information

Join us for the inaugural Colorado Coyotes Cross Country Invitational. This meet is open to all youth runners between the ages of 6-14 years old. The course is a mix of mostly grass and crushed dirt rock with a few sidewalk crossings and a few hills. The Invitational will be professionally chip timed by Colorado Race Timing with custom bibs and custom medal awards for the top five finishers, boys and girls in the USATF and open races.

The boys and girls races will be run together. All USATF members and anyone registering as an individual will run in the "USATF & Open" race, as the CARA meet is only for Colorado Parks and Recreation Association kids. The runners age group is determined by their age on December 31, 2017.
