Thousands are flying in from Eugene.
Valbymaniacs have been camping out for weeks for tickets
Going to be heartbreaking if Tuohy runs her down again.
Holy s*** it's true. Never seen that before. Really lame by UVA for the course not to be able to handle the number of spectators. I wonder if a bunch of people have flights and no tickets. Never needed to buy in advance before.
I agree. This is a horrible way to stage a national championship. In addition to being "sold out" Virginia is also hosting Duke in football. I'd like to say this is poor planning but I just think the AD of Virginia doesn't care.
Really surprised at some of the reactions here.
The NCAA cross country championship is sold out!!
All the crying over attendance on LR and this year lots of people want to go
I checked the UVA website a month ago where they said you must have a ticket and they anticipated a sell out. The hotels were expensive so I got an Airbnb.
At this point I'd like to thank UVA for hosting this event!!
137 tickets now all sold. 2 busloads of 50, 3 school vans of 10, and 7 in a refurbished ice cream truck to make the trip from the strip mall.
that's great that it's sold out. A lot of hype and interest around this years race. location is a big plus as Charlottesville is easy to drive to from the DC area and the Carolinas. Only a 4 hour drive from Raleigh. bet you see lots of Wolfpack supporters there for Tuohy's finale.
I just hope they didn't limit tickets as Panorama Farms is a privately owned compost/cemetary and they dont want crowds trampeling all over it. that'd be a shame.
Why is there a limit? Will people just walk on?
Very low amount of tickets allotted and the shuttle bus for all spectators makes it the worst run event in history. No one wants to wait for shuttle bus.
Lol, it's sold out! must be a few who don't mind!
I'll write a review Sunday, maybe you'll be right!
I suspect you can't drive or park anywhere close to the course.
No walk ons, recruited athletes only.
But why limit it? Imagine if you are a local high school coach wanting to bring your team. Imagine Grandma who just found out she can't get a ticket.
Then this venue shouldn't have been selected for such a large event.
It's sold out not because the venue lacks capacity, it's because there is no parking and all ticketed spectators have to be bussed over from the mall. Number of busses, space on busses and the timing of the busses is the limiting factor.
The truth is it almost didn’t get approved.
Yes, but Vin then used his own money to fly some of the voters to an LSU gymnastics meet.
If this is actually true, I have an extra ticket. I'll sell it for face value to the first person to reply.
