Immediately after each weekend of meets for the rest of this cross country season, MileSplit will be selecting a 14 boys and 14 girls nationally who truly had a BEAST race in their cross country meets over the past.

What defines an #XCBEAST? A #XCBeast performance can be seen by an elite cross country runner blowing out a field, shattering a course/meet record, defeating a fierce rival, leading their team to victory, performing in the clutch or pulling out a win in dramatic fashion, and many more ways to standout with jaw-dropping times and win.

These 14 XC girls went into "beast mode" with their race performances this past week (10/14 through 10/18). Click next to proceed.
