CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- University of Tennessee at Chattanooga cross country head coach Bill Gautier announced a change in the 2010 schedule. The Running Mocs will travel to Louisville, Ky., on Oct. 2 for the Ninth Annual Greater Louisville Cross Country Classic.
"This is the pre-regional race for the Southeast Region and there will be a lot of strong teams," Gautier said. "I wasn't sure we'd get in at first, but after we did well at Vanderbilt, they called and said they wanted us to come up there."
The event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 2 at the E.P. "Tom" Sawyer State Park in Louisville. The men will run an 8-kilometer race with the women trekking across the 5K course. The race begins at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.
"This will help us as we work toward the NCAA Championships."
As a result of adding this race, UTC will not compete at the Samford University Invitational on Oct. 9.
