TULSA, Okla. – The Oral Roberts University cross country teams will compete in another one of the most well known meets this weekend as they travel to Fayetteville, Ark., for the 25th Annual Chile Pepper Festival on October 5.

The race, which will feature more than 45 collegiate teams, comes a week after the Golden Eagles took on the soggy course at ORU for the Cowboy Jamboree.

The men will take on the 8k course at Agri Park at 9:45 a.m., while the women’s 5k race is scheduled for 10:20 a.m. More information about the race can be found at www.ChilePepperFestival.org.

Last week, the Golden Eagles battled through rain and lightning delays of more than two hours and still set a total of nine season-bests on the difficult course.
