The New York State Federation of Secondary Schools Athletic Association announced Tuesday the cancellation of its 2020 Cross Country Championships.

“Due to the continuing public health emergency related to COVID-19, the Federation Board unanimously voted to cancel this year’s Cross Country Championships,” said Jim Foster, NYSFSSAA Executive Secretary, via a press release. “We are disappointed that we won’t be able to give the top runners in New York State a chance to compete in a culminating championship event this year, but we understand the health and safety issues that are at the forefront right now.”

This year’s event was scheduled for Nov. 18 at Bowdoin Park in Wappingers Falls.

The New York State Public High School Athletic Association previously announced the cancellation of its fall championships for all sports.
