ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - The UCF cross country team is staying close to home this weekend when the Knights run at the 18th Annual Disney Cross Country Classic.

After a week off from competition, the team looks to make a push for its third victory of the year and second-in-a-row thanks to its first-place finish in its most recent outing at the FL Runners Invitational.

Saturday's 5K will take place at 8:30 a.m. at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and the race will broadcast on ESPN3. The Knights are one of 30 teams in the field, which includes Florida, FIU and Miami.

The following week, UCF will host the UCF Cross Country Invitational on Oct. 18. The women's 6K will begin at 5 p.m. and the men's 8K will start at 5:45 p.m. on UCF's campus.
