The men’s race will begin at 12 p.m. Eastern time followed by the women’s race at 1:15 p.m. Eastern time.

In 2016, North Central (Illinois) won the men’s championship, marking its 17th national title. They finished with 60 points, defeating SUNY Geneseo, who finished with 204 points.

On the women’s side, Johns Hopkins defeated Washington U. in St. Louis to win its fourth national championship. Johns Hopkins totaled 128 points to Washington U. in St. Louis’ 202.

Individual honors went to Amy Regan of Stevens Institute of Technology, who won the individual title, finishing 15 seconds ahead of Loras’ Audrey Miller. In the men’s championship, individual honors went to Ian LaMere of Wisconsin-Platteville, who finished almost 30 seconds ahead of Widener’s Ernie Pitone.
