Usually some of the 5th years without xc eligibility throw down some qualifiers and then take a month off. Last day of november. Post early December results here!
Women like to hold on for a few weeks after xc to hit national qualifying marks prior to taking December off. It allows them to have one continuous season of indoor/outdoor that starts later than their competitors. The BU 5k on Saturday looks like a preview to the ncaa 5k final. It can be watched on flotrack at 3:20 central.
