(VITFF) hosted the Virgin Islands National Cross-Country Championships at the Renaissance Park on St. Croix. The location change was very last minute due to the amount of rainfall this past week on St. Croix, which created an inability to cut the cross-country course at Estate Negro Bay.

Athletes from the St. Croix and St. Thomas/St. John districts competed in the Championship in the Under 10 and Under 14 categories for the 1-mile race, in the Under 16 category 2-mile race and the Open category 3.1-mile race.
