45th Annual Las Vegas/Larry Burgess Invitational Cross Country Meet

September 6, 2014

Sunset Park, Las Vegas, NV



The 45th Las Vegas-Larry Burgess Cross Country Invitational has changed locations! It has moved to SUNSET PARK in Las Vegas, new site of the Region and State Championships. The course is flat & fast - run on grass and dirt paths.

The LVI had over 1000 athletes last year.  We expect more athletes for great competition and even faster times this year.  The meet will be co-hosted by Young Life, Green Valley High School & Nevada Track Stats.  Food, drinks, and meet T-shirts will be available. There are several shady grass areas for all teams & their tents.
