For the first time in history, a NCAA postseason event will be held on the University of North Georgia’s Gainesville campus as the UNG cross country team will host the NCAA Southeast Regional on November 17
at the UNG Cross Country Course.
The 2018 NCAA regional will mark the 10th time that North Georgia has competed for a chance to race for a National Championship. The Nighthawks have advanced to the championship race once before in 2014.
Prior to hosting the regional, North Georgia will have the Southeast Regional course race ready for the sixth annual UNG Invitational on September 29 on the Gainesville campus. The Nightahwks will look to defend their title from a year ago in the race.
The UNG Cross Country course is is all grass and dirt and is considered “flat and fast.” Per NCAA championship guidelines, the NCAA Regional will be run as a 6K for the women and a 10K for the men. The UNG Cross Country Course is generally set up as a 2K loop. Fans can come to either event as admission is free and open to the public.
