Severna Park Boys, Howard Girls Headed to RunningLane

Get ready for RunningLane! The 2021 Garmin RunningLane XC Championships will be taking place on Saturday, Dec. 4 in Huntsville, Al. The course, which is located at John Hunt Park, is known for being the "fastest 5K cross country course in the nation."  In fact, it's a pretty simple course with just a single loop. To make it easy, we've compiled a list of information to help readers navigate the meet. Plus, learn about which runners are going to represent Maryland.

As demonstrated above, the course is pretty straightforward. The start is wide and eventually narrows down after a gradual funnel effect. The rest of the course has quite a few turns, but the final 150m is straight and leads directly to the finish line. Watch a video on the entire course layout below:
