The Cavaliers have benefited from Lannigan Field’s renovation in 2012 which has allowed them to host the ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 2012 and enabled the Virginia Challenge to become one of the top meets in the nation, attracting elite teams and Olympians each year. Panorama Farms, in Earlysville, gives Virginia one of the best cross country facilities in the country. The course was home to the 2013 and 2015 NCAA Southeast Regionals and the 2014 ACC Championships, and will host the regional meet again in 2016 and 2017.
