Meet Information

The River Run Cross Country Invitational returns to Fisher River Park in Dobson, NC on Saturday, August 25, 2018. From 2006 to 2012 this meet was known as the River Run Cross Country Invitational. This meet was a staple on the North Carolina cross country schedule from 2006 to 2012, with many teams from the Piedmont-Triad and Northwest North Carolina attending each year.
