ABOUT THE EVENT
Race day is Sunday, October 10, 2021!
The Wayland XC Festival, now in its 15th year, is held at the Wayland High School in Wayland, Massachusetts.
This is an exciting cross-country race through fields and wooded trails benefiting the Wayland High School Cross Country teams. With a series of Youth and Open races, this event provides one of the few open cross-country running opportunities for kids and adults in Massachusetts. Whether you are new to cross-country or a veteran of the trails, this is a race for you!
This is not only a great race to run; it's also a great race to watch! Spectators can see the competitors during many parts of the races.
The Wayland XC Festival has been chosen again to be part of the USATF-NE Grand Prix. This is a testament to the high quality of this event as only the best races in New England are chosen for this series.
We have made some exciting improvements to the course this year!
