Florida State hosts the 2014 NCAA® South Regional Championships on Friday, November 14, at the Apalachee Regional Park in Tallahassee.
The Apalachee Regional Park cross country course (7550 Apalachee Parkway, Tallahassee, FL 32311), developed by the Leon County Recreation Department in collaboration with Florida State University athletics and the local Gulf Winds Track Club, was designed with the sport in mind. A series of trails and loops allows for competition to be contested over a wide range of race lengths.
The predominant running surfaces are grass and crushed shell. The width of the course ranges from approximately 150 meters at the starting line and is signifi cantly wider than 25 meters through the fi rst 800 meters, where it narrows to 15 meters at the 1000m mark. The course meets and actually exceeds the 10-meter width requirement at all points through the finish chute following the recent completion of a $250,000 widening and renovation project.
