The Front Runners New York Cross Country Meet will take place on the legendary 5K cross country course at Van Cortlandt Park.
Starting in front of the Tortoise and Hare Statue, the course proceeds south on the Parade Grounds and turns left onto the "Flats." Runners make their way around the white "tortoise and hare" signs towards the Cowpath, up Cemetery Hill and over the runners bridge into the back woods where they will follow the trail back to the parade grounds and finish just past the starting line.
The course is technical, with roots, rocks, and steep hills. There may be muddy areas depending on weather.
