CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.–The Virginia men’s and women’s cross country teams host the NCAA Southeast Regional Championships Friday (Nov. 11) at Panorama Farms in Earlysville, Va.

The top-two teams and top-four individuals at each of the nine regional meets will automatically advance to the NCAA Championships to be held in Terre Haute, Ind., on Saturday, Nov. 19. Thirteen teams will also earn at-large bids to be announced on Saturday, Nov. 12.

Panorama Farms, located in Earlysville in northern Albemarle County, has been the home course of the Cavaliers since 2001. Friday’s meet marks the sixth collegiate championship event on the course as it also hosted the 2006, 2007 and 2014 ACC Championships as well as the 2013 and 2015 NCAA Southeast Regionals. This is the second of three-consecutive years Panorama Farms will host the regional.
Last year at the regional, both the Virginia men and women qualified automatically for the NCAA Championships by way of the Cavalier women’s win and the UVA men’s second-place finish.
