Vikings set to host Western Washington Classic Saturday at Lake Padden Park...

All four of Washington’s NCAA Division II cross country teams are competing at Saturday’s Western Washington Classic at Lake Padden Park in Bellingham.

The meet, consisting of a women’s 6k at 10 am and a men’s 10k at 11, will be contested on the same course that the GNAC championship meet will be held in two weeks, thus the fact that seven of the conference’s 11 schools will have teams racing.

In addition to being a preview of the conference course, the Western Washington Classic will also give the men the one shot to race over 10k before the championship, as its the only regular season meet offering the 10k distance.

Those wanting to watch the meet should have no difficulty finding Lake Padden Park. Head north up I-5 to Exit 246. Coming off the exit, turn left onto Samish Way, and follow it approximately 2.25 miles to the park's eastern entrance on the left (south) side of the road. The entry road comes to a 'Y'; keep to the right for the park. (The left half goes to the golf course).

NOTE:  The Great Northwest Athletic Conference and Western Washington University contributed to this report.
