Kansas Cross Country Set for 2019 Season

LAWRENCE, Kansas – The Kansas men’s and women’s cross country teams are set to begin their 2019 season on August 31, as the Jayhawks will host to two home collegiate meets at Rim Rock Farm, while competing in six meets in five different states over the course of the season.

"“I look forward to getting started. We host two meets in Lawrence to start the season, which should be a great opportunity for our fans to see our team compete at Rim Rock Farm,” Head Coach Stanley Redwine said. “It should be a competitive season for the Jayhawks.”"

The Jayhawks begin their 2019 schedule at home with the Bob Timmons Classic on August 31, as the team competes on their home course at Rim Rock Farm. On October 5, the Jayhawks will return to Rim Rock Farm for their second meet of the season, as the Jayhawks host the Rim Rock Classic.

After competing at their home course for the first two meets of the season, the Jayhawks will hit the road for the Pre-National Invitational in Terre Haute, Indiana on October 19.
