Marin History at Footlocker Nationals

The Footlocker National Championships was started in 1979. The race was run at Balboa Park in San Diego and 32 runners qualified for the championship race. In 2004 Nike started the Nike Cross Nationals (Erik Olson of Novato competed in NXN in 2009 placing 21st). In 2004 Footlocker added 2 more qualifying spots to each region so the Championship field increased to 40. The race was held in Orlando, FL 1981-82, 1997-2001.
