LetsRun.com Weekly
Boots on the ground.

LetsRun.com has arrived in Tallahassee and we are ready for one of the greatest days in our sport: the NCAA Cross Country Championships.

We didn't get to go to the last one in Stillwater, so the LetsRun crew is going all-out for this one. We'll be on the course this morning talking to some of the NCAA's top coaches and athletes. Then we'll have a live podcast at noon ET today from Apalachee Regional Park -- the ARP, as it's known to locals. Rojo, as you can tell, has already checked out the course.

We'll have on-site coverage tomorrow as well, with post-race recaps, analysis and interviews.

And if you haven't entered our prediction contest yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? It's free, and you can win free shoes, Running Warehouse gift cards, and bragging rights over your fellow LetsRunners.

Don't know who to pick? Just scroll down. Our previews will sort you out.

Enjoy NCAAs everybody!
Blowout 2021 NCAA XC Preview
2021 NCAA XC Men’s Team Preview: Blue Bloods or New Blood?
NAU (60 points), Notre Dame (87), and Oklahoma State (142) were the three best teams at NCAAs last year. NAU has gotten worse, Notre Dame has improved a little, and Oklahoma State has improved a lot. That means it should be pretty close between the three of them on Saturday. NAU has won 4 of the last 5 men's XC titles. Oklahoma State won 3 of 4 from 2009-12. Will the blue bloods prevail in Tallahassee, or will Notre Dame win its first title since 1957?
