Although there won’t be any championships won this weekend, the Doc Adams Open is sure to provide some healthy competition for UC Davis cross country.
With a good group of schools coming to Davis for the race, this will be a chance for younger players and redshirts to show what they are made of as many of the Aggies’ top runners rest in preparation for the NCAA Regionals next week. Coach Drew Wartenburg believes it will be a good measuring stick for many of the runners.
“This is a great opportunity for our athletes that aren’t usually counted on for points to gain some accountability,” he said. “Across the board, there’s opportunities to move up the depth chart.”
The race will take place on the west-edge of campus at the Putah Creek Reserve course. The men’s race will begin at 10 in the morning while the women will start at 10:45.
