Tentative 2020-21 Cross Country, Track and Field Schedules

This working calendar, courtesy of Ken Reeves and Albert Caruana, is tentative. Some meet dates are more firm than others and all are contingent on California's collective ability to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus to the point where it's safe enough to return to school campuses and gather in groups on the line awaiting the starting gun. Venue approval for these meets is pending.

This list is incomplete.

It is shared as guide, not a rule, and subject to change.

This list includes mostly meets in the Southern Section, with scattered meets in the Central and San Diego sections, as well as post-season dates as made available this week by the State CIF and individual sections. Meet names are assumed as "Invitational" unless noted.
