The University of Alabama men's and women's cross country teams will host men's and women's collegiate squads in Tuscaloosa this weekend for the annual Crimson Classic meet. Races begin Friday, October 17, at 2:30 p.m. on the Harry Pritchett Running Course located adjacent to the UA Arboretum.

Course

For decades, the University of Alabama men's and women's cross country teams have utilized several different practice areas - including its competition course, the Harry Pritchett Running Park. Built in 1959, and formerly known as the University Golf Course, it was named the Harry Pritchett Golf Course in 1980 and was known as such until November of 2003, when the course was converted exclusively for cross country use. In addition to playing host to the annual Crimson Classic event, the Harry Pritchett Running Park has been the venue for the SEC Cross Country Championships as well as the NCAA® South Regional Championships (most recently in 2011).
