The North Viking Invitational will take place on the very scenic Willis Golf Course at 4999 Vrain St, Denver, CO 80212 in the majestic Highlands of North Denver. With early fall temperatures this event is spectacular and loved by everyone! The Viking Invitational is one of the few and only traditional true Cross-Country courses in the state. The course has rolling hills and is 99 percent grass with a couple of sidewalk crossings. Please plan to bring friends and family members that love to run as we will be allowing coaches, family members and friends to race on the same spectacular course following the high school events!
This year we will be hosting a Middle School race that will be one lap around the course.
