Update: With careful consideration to the well-being and safety of student-athletes, coaches and fans due to the impending weather, the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Committee has decided to start each of the championship races one hour and 45 minutes earlier tomorrow morning. The 2017 NCAA Division I competitions, being held at E.P. Tom Sawyer Park in Louisville, Ky., will begin with the women’s race at 9 a.m. Eastern time, followed by the men’s race at 10 a.m. Eastern time. The awards presentations for both championships will be held on site shortly after the completion of the men’s race.

This year’s meet will mark the 79th annual NCAA Men’s Division I Cross Country Championships and the 37th annual NCAA Women’s Division I Cross Country Championships. This year, the broadcast will feature some of the biggest names in U.S. distance running: Jared Ward (BYU ‘14), U.S. Olympic marathoner and four-time cross country All American, and Kara Goucher (Colorado ‘01), two-time U.S. Olympian, three-time NCAA Champion, and silver medalist in the 2007 IAAF World Championships in 10,000 meters. Both Ward and Goucher will provide in-depth analysis of the Men’s and Women’s DI Cross Country Championships, respectively.

“Our passion for cross country traces back to the start of FloSports, and we’re proud to have the world’s most comprehensive coverage of college and high school cross country on FloTrack and MileSplit, respectively,” FloSports co-founder and COO Mark Floreani said. “Partnering with the NCAA and NCAA Digital to elevate these marquee events is a terrific opportunity, and we look forward to giving fans worldwide an unprecedented look at the incredible student-athletes who are competing.”
