31a01196-c8ec-4ca6-94da-b936ee472f30This weekend the Atlanta Track Club racing teams will be travelling to Boulder Colorado to compete in the 2014 USATF Cross Country Championships at the Flat Irons Golf Course.
The Atlanta Track Club will field 2 teams, one in the masters men 40+ category and also in the Open Women’s team category.
Coming off a 2nd straight USATF Masters LDR Grand Prix title, the Atlanta Track Club Men’s 40+ team will face the altitude and cold conditions in Boulder with a strong team that figures to be a contender for the team title.
Running for the Atlanta Track Club will be a strong group headed by Matthew Whitis & Michael Strickland. With these two will be Steve Wilcox and he will be joined by Ken Wempe & Jeff Haushalter.
The Open Women’s team for the Atlanta Track Club will include a squad that is all to familiar with cross country as most competed at the USATF Club Nationals just in this past December in Bend, Oregon. Courtney Cooper, Marcia Ammons & Stephanie Whitis will lead the team and all ran in Bend just 2 months ago. Joining this group are Beth Wiggins & Shane Sweet. With a small contingent of teams the Atlanta Track Club could contend for a top-5 finish.
