FloTrack Predicts The 2017 U.S. Cross Country Championships

The 2017 USATF Cross Country Championships are on Saturday in Bend, Oregon. The top six men's and women's finishers (who elect to run) will be selected to compete at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Kampala, Uganda. Additionally, two men and two women will race a 4x1K relay in Uganda. Like at World Cross, both men and women are racing 10K in Bend.

The winners of each race will receive $4,000, second place $2,500, third place $1,500, fourth place $1,000, with cash prizes all the way down to tenth place. USATF will also pay a $1,750 stipend to each athlete who accepts a spot on the World Cross roster. Here's who FloTrack predicts will finish in the top seven of the men's and women's senior races on Saturday. (There are also junior races that will select world teams.)
