I raced in my first XC event this weekend. It was done in 6” of snow and some deep drifts. This was a no frills race which cost $5.00 and a canned good to enter. The canned goods went to the needy and the money went to maintain the course. Several races are held on this course to include semi-state.
The race was a blast and the only problem is there weren’t enough participants. If you have the time, check it out. There is a race every Saturday at 9:00 AM in January. It is held at Northview Church, 5535 East 131st Street, Carmel, IN. Signups are morning of the race. Please recruit others if you can. Here is the link:
By the way, I was beat by two HS boys, two HS girls, and a 7th grader.
I stumbled onto Planet Adventure's web site. I am thinking about doing the daylight run.
Here is the jpg of Northview's XC course.
Are these happening this year?
Its a great course. I run it all the time since its only a mile from the house.
Out of town this week.
I'll call the Church and find out. Will post here.
No 5ks this January. They are hosting one big 5k on Feb 5th at 9:30 am.
Glad to hear they're doing something. I was going to do the Groundhog 7 on the 6th, but I have a scheduling conflict. This will be a nice alternative.
