Does pretty much look like a HS XC course. They are in Austin, TX. Why not use the state XC course? I wouldn’t say it’s embarrassing. Course looks ok and clearly the people filming/posting these videos were able to cover the whole course and see runners multiple times.
XC at the pro/elite level is managed so poorly by USATF. Club XC is next weekend. Will have 200-300 in the open men’s race. Then a month later they have the “national championship” somewhere in VA that will draw like 50 men. Just focus on club xc and bill it as the biggest xc race in the country - rotate it around historic courses in major cities and offer legitimate prize money
