Bradley Classic Information

CHICAGO -- The DePaul men's and women's cross country teams will compete in their second meet in six days on Friday (Oct. 18) evening at the Bradley Classic in Peoria, Ill.

The Blue Demons last ran on Oct. 12 at the Lucian Rosa Invitational in Kenosha, Wis.

Twenty-two schools will race tomorrow afternoon on the men's side, while 24 will participate on the women's side. The meet will be held at Bradley's Newman Golf Course, which has served as the host for the previous nine Bradley Classics, four NCAA Cross Country Regional meets and five Missouri Valley Cross Country Championship races.

Neither the DePaul men nor the women have ever won a team championship at the Bradley Classic, but in 2010, Matthew Graham posted a time of 23:37, a course record, in the men's 8K to win the individual title.

The men's 8K championship race will begin at 4:25 p.m. Friday. The women's 6K race will follow at approximately 5:05 p.m.
