The Cross Country Running Series is is sponsored by the Pacific Association of USA Track and Field (PA/USATF) and consists of ten off-road races spread around Northern California. The races range in length from about 5K to 10K and have perhaps the most competive fields of any races in Northern California. This is a Grand Prix with point totals being kept over the race series for both individuals and teams. Every year Tamalpa Runners hosts the Johhny Lawson Challange which is one of the races in the series. This race is held at China Camp, usually in early November.
Tamalpa attempts to field as many men's and women's teams in each age division as we can. We need at least five racers in the Men's Open, Men's Master's and Women's Open divisions and three racers in any other divisions in order to score team points for that division. If you have an interest in Cross-Country racing, contact the racing team coordinator (see Club Management) to get involved. Tamalpa has been very competitive against our sister teams, which include the Buffalo Chips in Sacramento, the West Valley Joggers and Striders from the Silicon Valley, the East Bay Striders from the Oakland area, and the Empire Runners from Sonoma County, to name a few.
