Maryland XC Weekend Rundown: State's Best Compete In VA & NC! River Hill Sweep At Blazers!

Brit Lang (pictured far left) ran a season best 5K time of 18:31 for the fastest girls time of the weekend by the Oakland Mills senior at the adidas XC Challenge with her 8th place run in Cary, North Carolina.

Beyond the Blazers Invitational at Utica Park in Frederick and the Prince George's County Invitational at Fort Washington Park, this weekend's theme is to leave Maryland and go find new competition elsewhere. Especially travel South with a large contingent of Maryland individuals and teams heading to the Oatlands Invitational in Virginia as well as another smaller but talented group heading down to the NXN Southeast Regional course in Cary, North Carolina for the adidas XC Challenge.

MileSplit will be on-site with our main coverage at Oatlands this weekend, but will have contributors with photo and video coverage at both the Blazers Invite and adidas XC Challenge.
