Each week MileSplit U will feature a Meet of the Week for the duration of the cross country and track and field seasons. This week's Meet of the Week is the Adidas Challenge meet, hosted by NC State, in Cary NC at WakeMed Soccer park.
The meet is in its second year and will feature some of the nation's best talent on the high school and college levels. The Adidias Challenge is part of the Golden Stripes cross country series, and this contest will mark the first stop on the series.
Course & History
The course itself is pretty flat with a couple of hills, so fans can expect fast times across the board. NC State men's team had a stellar showing last year. Eight individuals broke the 15-minute barrier including Greg Dame, who was the event winner with a time of 14 minutes, 57.9 seconds.
The Wolfpack men ranked No.11 in Wednesday's national cross country team poll by USTFCCCA.
Our partner and crime, Flotrack, will be on site Friday and Saturday with live updates, race videos, photos and post-race interviews. Stay tuned!
