The SWAC Cross Country Championships will be held in Tallahassee, Fla. on Monday Sept. 24 at the Apalachee Regional Park.  The course is a perfect venue for the meet as it has hosted NCAA Regionals and the City of Tallahassee has poured resources into the venue including staging and terrain alteration, making it conducive for hosting the best meets in the country.  This will be the first time since Florida A&M and Bethune-Cookman joined the SWAC in 2020 that the championship is held virtually in their back yards.
