dadlogoHere’s your chance to run one of the fastest and most historic cross country courses in the nation…under the lights. That’s right, we are going to light up Detweiller Park! Run your next PR on the grass and under the lights! This race is for everyone! No matter how fast or slow, you don’t want to miss this one!

These races will be run in true cross country fashion. What this means is that this is not a typical Saturday morning local 5K race. This is all about cross country running. There will be NO water stops along the course.

You won’t want to miss it.
