All participants will be required to return chips prior to leaving the finish area. A $10 return chip fee will be assed to the participating team for every chip not returned. Returning chips is the

responsibility of the head coach of each team.

The Abingdon Invitational was renamed the Don Cumbow Invitational in 2019. Coach Cumbow was Head Cross Country Coach for 43 years, from 1974 until the summer of 2019. He mentored, coached, and impacted the lives of many student-athletes and we felt it only fitting to rename our race. We thank you for attending our race and wish you luck on the remainder of your season!
