Schedule update: The construction in Forest Park has advanced to a point where even our alternate route for the 8K is no longer an option. Trenches and snow fencing block re-entry to the park; the spray painted signs are very clear in their intent. Consequently, we will be discontinuing the 8K road races for the time being. Beginning this week, and continuing until the construction is done, we will offer only the 5K XC race weekly on Wednesdays at 6:30. Sorry for the inconvenience; hope to see you there.

NB: Cross country courses can be hazardous. You will encounter roots, gravel, uneven terrain and mud. If you have questions re course conditions please speak to the race director before the race.
