Next race dates for St. Croix are Sept. 27, Oct. 11 and Oct. 18 and the Cross-Country Team Championship on Oct. 21.

The Virgin Islands Track and Field Federation will also be hosting the 2 by Metric Mile Trail Relay on Sept. 30, on the same Cross-Country course in Negro Bay. Teams consisting of two athletes each will be competing against each other.

Each athlete on the team will run 1500 meters, which is just short of a mile, on the smaller loop of the course. The first runner completes the loop and tags the 2nd runner who will then complete the same loop. The team with the fastest total time in their category wins.
