The nine member colleges of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) will compete in the cross country jamboree hosted by Hope College on Saturday at the Ridge Point Community Church (340 104th Avenue, Holland MI 49423).

The women's race will begin at 11 a.m. and  the men's race at noon.

The MIAA cross country championship is determined on the basis of two meets involving all schools. One jamboree during the season  determines one-third of the seasonal champion and a season-ending meet determines the remaining two-thirds. The season-ending meet will be hosted by Adrian on Oct. 31.
