Time To Start Thinking About Ocean State Invite


It's early but it's never too late to start thinking about the Ocean State Cross-Country Invitational, held at Goddard State Park in Warwick, R.I. One of the region's top events during the fall season will kick off with a series of six middle school races on Sept. 21 and concludes Sept. 22 with 14 high school races and an Open 5K Trail Run. 

This is a meet that traditionally attracts quality competition from R.I., surrounding states and more. In 2017, the Ocean State Invite featured athletes from Colorado, Massachusetts, New York, Virginia, Connecticut and New Jersey. In the girls' race, Kelsey Chmiel of Saratoga Springs (NY) established a meet record in the Championship Race, clocking a winning 17:35.0 for the five-kilometer distance. Chmiel, who led her team to the overall title, would later take runner-up honors at the Nike Cross Nationals. Tristan Shelgren of St. John's Prep (MA) would out-lean New York's Mason Gatewood to win the boys' title with both runners timed in 15:32. 

More than 1,600 runner competed in last year's event. Awards and medals will be given in all divisions, which include sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade races for middle-schoolers, and freshmen, junior varsity, varsity and Championship races for high-schoolers.
