Friday’s meet is also one of nine regional qualifiers taking place across the country, and the top two teams in each regional automatically qualify for the championships. Teams can also qualify as one of the 13 at-large teams chosen by the NCAA DI Cross Country Subcommittee based on performances at regionals.
Individual runners can also qualify for the national championships separately from their teams. The first four finishers who do not belong to an automatic qualifier or at-large team automatically advance to the championships, so long as they finish in the top 25 in their region.
Two runners are also selected at-large to compete in the championships as the highest-placing individuals at a regional who weren’t automatic qualifiers.
The event is the first NCAA regional hosted at Gans Creek Cross Country Course and is the largest meet the course has hosted in its three-year history. However, it is not the first major competition that Gans Creek has hosted, as the 2021 SEC Championships were run on the course.
