The 2021 Nike Portland XC Invite will see some of the best of the Northwest runners doing battle on Saturday, and you can watch all the live streaming action on RunnersSpace!
This week is another weekend packed with cross country meets, but there will be a lot of focus at the Blue Lake Regional Park near Portland, Oregon. The live streaming broadcast and on demand videos will require a RunnerSpace +PLUS account and you can get signed up here.
Organizers and fellow running experts are predicting “epic” battles at a meet that will feature several all-stars clashing. Among the featured races is the well-anticipated Jim Dinner Championship girls race which will see four of the top 10 runners in the nation going head-to-head!
It’s awesome to have the meeting making its return after last year’s event was hosted as a virtual event due to the pandemic. The Nike Portland XC Invite is a great day for our sport. This meet provides a competitive atmosphere for elite, smaller, and building teams.
Meanwhile, in addition to the varsity races, the Nike Portland XC Invite has grade level JV races. The top five teams in all varsity divisions receive plaques and the top 50 individuals in ALL high school and middle school races are awarded medals.
Additionally, a Nike sponsored athlete will be in attendance to sign autographs and hand out merchandise. WATCH NIKE PORTLAND XC LIVE (+PLUS subscription required)
