The cross-country team is going to hold its  5th annual Alumni 5k October 8th at 8 A.M at the Bellwood-Antis High School.

The race will be a homecoming event. Entrants can either run the 5k or walk miles. The race will be open to everyone not just alumni and  the course will feature a woods loop and a mix of trails, grass, and road.  All proceeds/benefits will go toward the cross-country team.

Runner Noah Green commented on the race saying, “”The best way to prepare for a 5k run is to hydrate, eat healthy, and to pace yourself.”.

Head Coach Conner Hunter also commented saying, “If you are new to running, we have a 6-week program to help get you ready for the race.”

Anyone who would like to sign up, should find a coach or a team member to obtain a registration. Those registering by  September 28th are guaranteed a free t-shirt.
