LAWRENCE, Kan. – The 2021 NCAA cross country season is drawing near as the Kansas cross country team unveiled its schedule on Monday, which consists of six meets, including the season-opening Bob Timmons Classic at Rim Rock Farm on September 4.

After opening the season on their home course, the Jayhawks will travel to Columbia, Missouri to compete in the Gans Creek Classic on October 1, before competing at the Pre-National Invitational in Tallahassee, Florida on October 15.
Kansas will then set its sights on the postseason, as KU travels to Stillwater, Oklahoma, the site of the 2021 Big 12 Championship on October 29.
The Jayhawks will then head north to Iowa City, Iowa to compete in the NCAA Midwest Regional on November 12, which serves as a qualifier for the NCAA Championships on November 20.
