Announcing the 2015 Wings National Team

After an exciting few weeks of post-season regional competition, Wings has finally selected our elite squad for USA Cross Country Championships. Without a doubt this has been the most-difficult national squad to make in recent memory (both men’s and women’s teams). Though eligible runners posted qualifying times at 6 different regional races around the country, competitors at the NXN southwest regional were definitively faster. These young men and women will train through the holidays and suit up to go toe to toe with other Junior Team USA hopefuls in Boulder, CO:
