Meet Information

Guest and Cast Safety is always our top priority with any event at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Given the unpredictable nature and path of Hurricane Matthew, the decision has been made to cancel the 2016 Disney Cross Country Classic, which was scheduled for this Friday, October 7th and Saturday, October 8th.
