The Canisius College men and women's cross country team will travel across town to the Amherst Audubon Golf Course to compete in the 2011 NCAA Cross Country Northeast Regional Championships on Nov. 12. The men's 10K race, comprised of 353 runners from 39 teams, will begin at noon. The women's 6K race will follow at 1:15 p.m. with 364 runners from 40 teams.

The Golden Griffins return to regional competition after not competing in the 2010 Northeast Regional Championships at Hammonassett State Park in Madison, Conn. At last season's regional championships, reigning champion Syracuse swept both races.

At the 2009 Northeast Regional Championships in Boston, Mass., the women's team finished 28th overall, while the men's team placed 32nd. In the race, senior Christine Mulvihill finished 133rd with former Griff Maura Frauenhofer leading the way to finish 86th. The men were led by Vasilis Kariolis, who placed 173rd followed by junior Alex Simon's 202nd-place finish.

The Northeast Regional Championships is one of nine total regional championships. Each race will determine the teams and individuals, who will compete in the NCAA Cross Country National Championships in Terre Haute, Ind. on Nov. 21.

The top-two scoring teams from the men's and women's races at each regional championship will receive an automatic berth in the national championships. The top-25 individual performers in each race will receive All-Region honors.

Both admission and parking for the race are free. Parking will be available in the University at Buffalo Stadium Parking Lot, located off of the Coventry Road Entrance. Shuttle busses will be provided between the lot and the race course. The awards ceremony will follow the conclusion of the women's race at approximately 2 p.m. near the Amherst Audubon Golf Course Clubhouse.
