The rescheduled Collegiate Club National Championships will feature an Olympic-distance race on Saturday, Sept. 25, and a sprint-distance relay race on Sunday, Sept. 26, both in a non-drafting format. At this time, the Olympic-distance race has a capacity of 800 athletes total. Registration is open now.
