The Florida State cross country teams will compete in nine meets prior to the 2022 NCAA Cross Country Championships in Stillwater, Okla.

“This is one of our best schedules we’ve ever had,” FSU head coach Bob Braman said, “The Notre Dame and Wisconsin invites will be key for NCAA qualifying. The schedule also has great meets for our young runners to get great experience. The Asics and Crimson meets will fit that bill.”

Florida State will open the 2022 season on Sept. 2 in Boone, N.C., by running in the Covered Bridge Invite. FSU will return to Boone on Sept. 16 to compete against Tennessee in a dual meet.

The squads will split and compete in the Joe Piane Invite at Notre Dame on Sept. 30 and the Asics Invite in Fairburn, Ga., on Oct. 1, before returning to Tallahassee to host the FSU Invite on Oct. 7 at the Apalachee Regional Park.

“FSU XC Invite will be another huge meet on the Nation’s best course as well,” Braman added.

On Oct. 14, the teams will compete in two meets, the Nuttycombe Invite, hosted by the University of Wisconsin, and the Crimson Classic in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

The ACC Championships shift to Charlottesville, Virginia, on Oct. 28, and the NCAA South Region Championships return to Huntsville, Ala., on Nov. 11.

The 2022 season will close on Nov. 19 at the NCAA Championships in Stillwater Oklahoma at the Oklahoma State Cross Country Course, which is known as one of the toughest terrains in the country.
