The 40th Annual Woodbridge Cross Country Classic has been re-scheduled for Thursday, January 14th (first race at 5:00pm) and Friday, January 15th, 2021 (first race at 5:00pm) due to the COVID-19 virus crisis as per the CIF sports calendar. The meet will be identical to our previous meets. This website has all the information you might need about the meet (registration forms/information, schedule of races, race photos and videos, all-time performance lists, etc.).

Our meet dates have moved to Thursday and Friday due to a scheduling conflict at our SilverLakes Sports Complex venue. Also, since this weekend is the national Martin Luther King holiday, families will be able to enjoy the entire three-day weekend.

If your school registered for the meet (originally scheduled for September 18 and 19, 2020) during the spring or summer registration periods, you do not need to register again for the January event. You are all set!

The Woodbridge Classic will be hosted at the SilverLakes Sports Complex again in 2021. The SilverLakes Sports Complex is an excellent venue for our meet. The facility provides the space for a running course that has a 100-meter-wide starting line, a 400-meter-long straight away start, is run mostly on well-manicured grass surface, is very visible for the spectators, and is very fast (typical Woodbridge).

When you add the capability for accommodating all the bus and spectator parking and amenities such as an on-site full restaurant, food trucks, ample bathrooms, etc., everyone will enjoy a great experience.

Red and White divisions will run on Friday. Blue and Gold divisions will run on Saturday. Divisions are based on school size (White, Red, Gold, Blue is the order from small to large), team strength (White to Blue is the order) and coach’s/team travel plan requests.

Our staff will continue to work very hard to provide an enjoyable experience for you and your athletes. The meet will be timed using bib chips; will have live results (unofficial) as well as 1-mile and 2-mile splits; will live-stream the finishes; will have a jumbo display board; and, will post the official results online as soon as all the finishes are reviewed with the FinishLynx cameras.

Please check back regularly to this website between now and January for all the latest news and announcements relating to the event.

If you have not already registered for our 40th Annual Classic, please do so right away. We have spots available currently due to the number of out-of-state teams not being able to attend. However, the spots do not last long. Register using the Team Entry Form.

For our friends from states outside of California, we are tentatively adding an “OPEN” division to our event so that these schools could race our course and get away from the winter cold to beautiful sunny Southern California. In January. The “OPEN” races will be contested on Friday morning (January 15, 2021) starting at 7:30am. We are presently surveying interest is the “OPEN” division. If your school might be interested, please let us know.

The 41st Annual Woodbridge Cross Country Classic is scheduled for September 17 and 18, 2021.

Please continue to check back regularly to this website for all the latest news and announcements relating to the event.

Thank you for adding the Woodbridge Cross Country Classic presented by ASICS America to your 2020 schedule! We hope to see you at our January 2021 delayed meet!
