SAN DIEGO, Calif. – The University of San Diego cross country team hits the ground running as they travel to Baylands Park in Sunnyvale, CA to compete in the Bronco Cross Country Invitational this Thursday, October 15th. The Toreros will begin competition at the Bronco Invite with the women’s 5k at 9:45 a.m., followed by the men’s 8k at 10:30 a.m.

With a three week break from competition, the Toreros look to test their rested legs against a number of nationally and regionally ranked teams from seven different states as far away as Maryland and Hawaii. The Toreros will also be competing against West Coast Conference opponents Pepperdine, Santa Clara, Saint Mary’s, Portland and San Francisco.

The Baylands Park is a flat, sizzling fast course with most of the course run on hard dirt trail that is part of the Bay Area marshland. Races will both take off and end on grass, featuring close to 200 runners in each race.

Weather conditions for Saturday’s competition have turned for the better with the Toreros facing a partly cloudy Bay Area environment with temperatures that will be between 62-74 F degrees. The fog may play a part in the early day races, providing a cooler mystic feel to the Baylands course.

Following the Bronco Invite this Saturday, the Toreros will look to continue competition on the road, as they travel to Fullerton, CA, to compete in the Titan Invitational on Friday, October 21st.
