SARATOGA SPRINGS — This Saturday, Oct. 9, Pitney Meadows Community Farm will be busy, as high school runners from all over New York State and Vermont will meet to compete at the first ever Saratoga XC Invitational. 

The meet will be contested on the beautiful grounds of the Pitney Farm, where runners will be challenged with a mix of dirt, grass, and stone dust trails. The course is generally flat, fast, and in perfect condition for fast times and great competition. Spectators will be able to see the runners throughout the race. 

The Saratoga Boys’ team will be led by senior Ryan Bush, who is one of the top ranked runners in New York. Bush will be supported with a deep group of dedicated teammates, including a very talented group of middle school runners that look to make a strong statement in the modified race. Saratoga will also have strong runners in the freshman and junior varsity races. 

Racing begins at 1 p.m. with the girls’ modified races, with races every 20-30 minutes throughout the afternoon. The meet will also offer music, food, and t-shirts. 

Following the middle and high school races, there will be a Kids 1km Fun Run, followed by the Michael Pitney Memorial 5k. Proceeds from the community races will benefit the Pitney Farm Project.
