Join Us for the 2023 Cross Country Season

The Chips are looking forward to the 2023 Fall Season of the annual Pacific Association USATF Cross Country Grand Prix, which combines 10 Northern California dirt and grass races into a series.  The races range in length from about 5K to 10K and have perhaps the most competitive fields of any races in Northern California. There is team and individual scoring for each race, and scoring is combined for point standing as well as prize money. Find information about results and standing here. 

The Buffalo Chips enter teams for each division every year and travel to the various destinations to enjoy the competition and fellowship of runners. See details and links below regarding how to join a team.

Check the Cross Country schedule below with specifics for each race.

The Buffalo Chips host the Grand Prix race at Willow Hills in Folsom. Information specific to that event on October 16 can be found here. 

You can view the 2023 Cross Country schedule here. All races will also be listed in our Event Calendar.
