The Clarion Area Cross Country runners are off to another strong start this season with a large varsity and junior high squad represented by 46 runners. 

Leading the charge again is Head Coach Keith Murtha, with some veteran runners and new recruits helping to make Clarion noticed not just by fellow Keystone Shortway Athletic Conference competition, but across District 9 and beyond.  Clarion returned with 13 medals and a Junior High Boys Cross Country 2nd place team finish, from the Bradford Invitational last Saturday (September 14th).
