8th Annual Spencer Greenwave Cross Country Invitational

Columbus, GA

Meet Information

Meet and Course Information:
Meet will be held on Fort Benning at the Stewart Field by the old Family Entertainment Center/Destiny Dogs. Due to the meet being on post, spectators and teams should plan to arrive a little early to go through the gates. The course will be on flat ground that is mainly packed gravel and grass. The course is very spectator friendly and fast! This course is a true 5000 meter course. We had 17 High School Teams from all over Georgia and Alabama last year.

Additional Opportunities:

Expectations of getting on Fort Benning:
Spectators and teams should expect a little bit of a delay getting on base through the main entrance. To combat this, spectators can register as guests online in advance of the race to help speed up the process. Make sure everyone in the vehicles have a photo identification with them. Team Buses will have passes to get them on the base.
