Elliott Heath to Compete in International XC Race Saturday

USA Junior Men's Cross Country Champion Elliott Heath will compete against athletes from Canada, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Trinidad, and Puerto Rico this Saturday as part of the USA team for the NACAC Cross Country Championships to be held in Clermont, Florida.

Heath (pictured) will be a member of the four-member junior men's team that will compete over 6K. The North America, Central America and Caribbean Athletic Association meet will also include a 4K junior women's race, a 6K senior women's race, and an 8K senior men's contest. Last year the USA beat Canada 22-34 for the junior men's title.

Later this month, Heath will compete at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Mombasa, Kenya.
