CM Invitational

Established in 1958 by Br. James Barry, the Catholic Memorial Invitational is one of the longest running cross country races in New England and is known for its efficiency and its longstanding tradition as one of the few invitational races in New England sponsored by a high school.

The race, held annually in October at Franklin Park, had its 60th edition during the 2021 season. Freshmen run the 3K course, while the varsity races are standard 5K races.
