Hanover to host cross country Triple Crown

Hanover College’s cross country program will host a summer racing series for area athletes of all ages. The Hanover College Triple Crown will be held during three consecutive Wednesdays in July.

The three-race series is designed to test fitness and sharpen summer training. Each week, the course distance will increase one kilometer. The series begins July 9 with a three-kilometer race (3K). A four-kilometer race (4K) will be held July 16 and the triple crown will conclude July 23 with a five-kilometer event (5K).

All three races will be held on Hanover’s renowned course, which served as site for the 2013 NCAA III national championships. The course also hosted NCAA national championships in 2008 and 2003, in addition to numerous regional and conference championships.

Hanover's Triple Crown costs $5 dollars per race. Registration will be held at the course prior to each race, beginning at 6:15 p.m. Athletes who pre-register for all three will receive a one-of-a-kind t-shirt after completing the final race.
