    NOTE: RACE #5 WILL START AT 3:45PM.  

    Our Fall Cross Country Series features alternating 4 Milers and 5Ks, plus a final night relay race. Races start shortly after 4:00 PM, Sundays from Oct 20th through Nov 17th.  We'll race on variations of Verdun's beautiful Cross Country Course.  The weather should be nice and cool, and the leaves will be turning.

    The cost is only $6 per race if you sign up for the full series (EARLY BIRD SPECIAL: $5 per race through August 31).  We will get your times, but this is all for fun.  No medals, no t-shirts, just a chance to test yourself and hang out with fellow runners.  To make it more fun, we will pick teams on the spot and score it like a XC race; The sum of your team's top 5 places is your score, and low score wins.  This should take some of us back to our high school and/or college years. 

    Format:
    We will gather at the Pavilion for instructions, I'll show you guys a couple turns that might be confusing, and then we'll start.   We start and finish at the Pavilion.  The distance is approximately 4 Miles (Races #1 and #3) and 5K (Races #2 and #4).  The final night's relay will be done on a short course (less than one mile) with each runner running several times. NOTE: Your GPS numbers may vary.  The course will be well marked, with maps posted on this page so you can DL them. 

    Thanks, Verdun!
    Verdun Adventure Bound is generously allowing us to use their great XC course at no extra charge. They are a non-profit, and all entry fees will go to them. They are being very good to me, and I love them for it!  I have virtually no expenses with this race*.  That's why the cost is so low.

    After 1st Race: $25 for the remainder of the series.
    After 2nd Race: $20 for the remainder of the series.

    Get to know Verdun, here (spawns a new window).  It's a wonderful place for all sorts of activities. Get your company to use the place for an outdoor event. Send a kid to camp. Host a race, even!
    *Water will be provided at the finish.  If we have a solid, loyal turnout, I will bring some home baked goods to the final race.  

     

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
