  BELMONT PLATEAU HALL OF FAME CLASSIC SET FOR AUG 25TH
    Dave Thomas (left), president and founder of the Belmont Plateau Cross Country HOF  has announced the 4th Annual Belmont Plateau Hall of Fame Classic will take place on Saturday/ August 25th at Belmont Plateau Park in Philadelphia.  The 5k Classic is run on the cross country course that all of the high school runners and college women compete on. The runners are challenged on this course and is a real cross country course with hills, grass and trails.  There are cash awards to the top 3 men and women as well as a men and women team championship.  The Hall of Fame Classic is the "kickoff" race to the Cross Country season at Belmont Plateau and will serve as the 2018 USATF Mid Atlantic Masters Cross Country Championship.   The 2018 Belmont Plateau CC Hall of Fame Class will be inducted into the HOF at the race.   Race proceeds help support the BPCCHOF mission and also to raise funds to build a "Walk of Fame" near the finish line of Belmont Plateau Park.

CONNECT WITH US!
The Belmont Plateau Cross Country Hall of Fame directs and manages a number of cross country races at Belmont Plateau. We also want to keep you up to date by providing a  general schedule for all the races that take place on the Cross Country trails. BP is the home course for the Philadelphia Catholic, Philadelphia Public, CYO as well as a number of local colleges and the Mid Atlantic USATF. CLICK on   RACE PAGE for the most up to date total schedule of racing at Belmont Plateau (along with results).  The Belmont Plateau Hall of Fame has partnerships with some local road races as a race consultant and their race listing will also appear on the Race Page, but the main focus will be cross country racing at the Plateau.
One of the Missions of the Belmont Plateau Cross Country Hall of Fame is to promote the long history and traditions of cross country racing at Belmont Plateau.  Many leagues from youth, high school and college use Belmont Plateau as their home course. We will maintain a championship list page which will list the history of cross country champions from league championships and long running race invites at the Plateau.  Click on CHAMPIONS LIST to go to this page and links to all champions lists.
