September 12 – November 7, 2021
Welcome to the 31st year of the PGXC Series. Come run one or all five of the best Cross Country races in Upstate NY for Open and Masters runners. Individual and Club members compete for individual age group prizes and team awards at each race. Members of Upstate NY Clubs also compete for Series points, awards, and bragging rights. Series individual and team champions will be recognized at Championship Day on Sunday, November 7th.
These races are for the most experienced runners as well as beginners to the sport of Cross Country running. It’s fun for all and anyone may participate. The PGXC series is now in its 31st year and was started in 1990 by the late Peter Glavin. Participants earn individual points and club points in various age group competitions at each race. The five races are hosted by local clubs in locations throughout the Southern Tier, Central, and Western NYS.
