The Railer cross country team travels to Manhattan Warner Park this Saturday September 3rd to start the 2011 season.
The "Congo Trail" course is a challenge to start the season due to the combinations of short hills, and long, steady incline hills. It is a good gauge to determine the runners conditioning. The Boys and Girls Teams both placed 4th at this meet in 2010.
The running schedule is as follows:
- 9:00am - B Boys (5K)
- 9:30am - B Girls (4K)
- 10:00am - A Boys (5K)
- 10:30am - A Girls (4K)
- 11:00am - C Boys (4K)
Parking is available in Warner Park for a $5.00 per car fee. There is limited parking on the streets outside of the park, but plan to get there early if you want to find a spot - and plan on walking a while!
Teams competing are: Emporia, Highland Park, Junction City, Lawrence, Leavenworth, Manhattan, Newton, Topeka Seaman, Shawnee Heights, Topeka High, Topeka West, Washburn Rural, Salina Central, St. John's Military Academy.
