About This Activity
Knights Crossing is the largest XC Festival in South Western Virginia. Currently, it has over 50 high schools and over 40 middle school represented.
The open race has been very popular with parents, coaches, and the Roanoke Valley Elite runners.
Because the course is very flat and all grass, it is extremely fast if you are looking to PR in a fall race.
