Course Description: 5K cross country run on the same course as the famous Swain Invitational cross country meet. The course runs along the Enger Park golf course. This is a very hilly and tough 5K.

Pull out your spikes if you have them.

Packet Pickup: Packet pickup and late registration will be held on race day near the start of the course and will go from 1pm to 3pm. All athletes will receive a t-shirt and chip for timing.

Parking: Parking is available along Skyline Parkway. It will be very hard to find a spot near the entry into the Enger Park golf course. We highly recommend giving yourself an extra half an hour or more to get to the starting area. Carpooling is recommended.
