2019 Clarion Area Cross Country Team

Without having the typical Quad Series which culminates with the Ice Cream race in Grove City this year, this a great opportunity for the high school or open runner to get a chance to race and it supports the Clarion Cross Country Team.

Following the 5K will be the Kids’ Half Mile Race. Similar to the style seen at the Quad Series and done following some Varsity cross country meets, our elementary runners can race on a half mile course where parents and spectators can see them and cheer the entire time. The kids’ race is expected to start at 9:40 AM,  previous to the 5K awards.

Elementary runners may choose which race they want to enter. Cost for the race, a primary fundraiser for the cross country team, are $30 for the 5K and $12 for the kids race.

Make plans to come out and join us!

I am especially thankful to generous sponsors, the folks at the county park and the officers of our booster club who have worked hard to make this come together.
