Canterbury will host the 45th Annual XC Invitational this upcoming Saturday, September 23rd. The day begins with the Junior Schools Race at 10 am. All athletes will run together and awards will be presented upon the conclusion of the race. The Top 10 Finishers receive ribbons.

Registration begins at 11:30 am for all Prep Schools competing with a coaches meeting following at 1 pm. The girls will race first with Division I at 2:30 pm and Division II at 3:00 pm. Following, the boys start; Division I at 3:30 pm and Division II at 4:00 pm. Awards will be presented upon the conclusion of the Division II Boys' race.

The Canterbury Invitational has been an annual tradition extending since 1972. Prep Schools across New England and the Mid-Atlantic were invited to bring their Boys' XC teams to the School to race 2.7 miles across our hilly fields. Girls' teams were invited to join in 1978, but it was not until 2002 that the race was increased to 3.1 miles in distance as a true 5K.

Canterbury is looking forward to welcoming all visitors to our campus for this fall tradition.
