As also noted below, schedule of races, both being held Saturday, November 21st, are - women's race at 10:00; men's at 11:00. (All times converted to mountain time; Louisville is in eastern time zone, so local times of races are 2 hours later.) Note- these are the corrected start times. I originally had them incorrectly starting 1/2 hour later. Continue reading... " BOULDER — Folks who follow Colorado’s standout cross country program noticed a new name — sort of — in the mix for the CU men at last weekend’s NCAA Mountain Region meet. New because he hadn’t raced this year. Not so new because Ben Saarel is a two-time All-American who has been an integral part of the Buffs’ two consecutive NCAA championships — and will now have a role Saturday when Mark Wetmore’s crew seeks a three-peat in Louisville, Ky. ... “Our teams are ready, they’re healthy, they know what to expect at this particular venue,” Wetmore said. “I don’t see anybody that looks green around the gills, that they’ve raced too much.” One advantage the Buffs will have over some of the other teams is that they competed in the NCAA Pre-Nationals on the same course earlier this year. While the championships distance is slightly longer — the men will run 10K instead of 8K and the women will run 6K instead of 5K — they’re still familiar with some of the course nuances. And if Wetmore has any concerns, it’s one of those course nuances. “Honestly, what keeps me awake is a pileup,” Wetmore said. “This course has some narrow places, some sort of invisible ditches if you’re not in the lead. But of course you can’t win the whole race by sprinting to the lead. Then you can see the ditches but your race is over in a half a mile. My real concern is a pileup.” At the Pre-Nationals, Wetmore said, there was a pileup in all six races held that day. The Buffs escaped relatively unscathed, but did have a runner who required stitches in his shin after getting caught briefly in one of the pileups. “While they were searching for sutures, there was a guy in there getting his back stitched up from getting trampled,” Wetmore said. “That’s what’s keeping me awake.” Saturday's races begin with the women's race at 10 a.m., followed by the men's competition at 11 a.m. Both events will be streamed live on NCAA.com.
