Race Director's Blog: Local Meet Director Ben Rosario shares his thoughts on the storylines heading into this weekend's meet and the huge crowd expected to come out and watch.
We just had our final host organizing committee last night and I'll spare you the hour and a half talk about packet pick-up protocol, course marking and how many hot dogs to buy for the concession stand (750 if you were wondering). Rather, I'll tell you about the 15 minute conversation I had afterward with Chris and Brent from the St. Louis Sports Commission. We talked about all the storylines for this weekend and how this really is shaping up to be exactly what we envisioned two years ago when we won this bid; the best USA Cross Country Championships in the history of the event!
