The Cazenovia Girls and Boys Cross Country teams will sponsor a three-mile trail run fundraiser on their Fenner Road course on September 1. The race is open to participants of all ages with a men’s race to kick off at 6 p.m., followed by a women’s race at 6:45 p.m.
The entry fee is only $10 to participate, with an added $6 fee for those who wish to pre-order a t-shirt by August 26. Proceeds from the race will be used to help defray costs for the teams to compete at more distant invitational meets.
Entry forms may be obtained via the school web-site athletics page at: cazenoviacsd.com/athletics/team-notes/cazenovia-x-c-trail-run-information, or from the high school office or any cross country athlete.
The race will be conducted on the Lakers’ scenic 4,800-meter course traversing woods, fields and small streams in the Fenner countryside. Free parking and restroom facilities will be available near the start line at the school’s Fenner Road Sean Googin Athletic Complex.
Advanced entry forms should be mailed by August 26. Participants may also sign up on race day near the start line beginning at 4:30 p.m.
