Come join the Avon Grove community for this fun family event to support the Avon Grove High School Cross County teams. This is a well-marked and marshaled rolling cross-country course. Post-race awards, refreshments, and raffle prizes. We will be raffling off prizes based on bib number around 9:15 AM. Awards for top male and female as well as top 3 male and female runners in 10-year age groups. (Avon Grove Cross Country Team Runners are ineligible for awards). Race t-shirts for first 100 registered.
The funds raised will be used to supplement the cost associated with running a successful cross-country program as well as to enrich the AGHS running programs. Participating in a high school athletic program
provides many benefits including establishing a healthy lifestyle at an early
age, lower rates of diabetes and high blood pressure, and improved
cardiovascular and pulmonary function. Participating in sports has also been
associated with higher grades, an increase in self-confidence, self-respect,
and leadership skills. Last year, we had a fantastic turnout for the race with nearly 200 registered runners and over 30 wonderful sponsors. This is a huge community event open to the public.
Timing and awards will be based on gun time.
After the race, stick around for the Avon Grove Homecoming Parade and Festivities and experience for yourself the energy and camaraderie of the AG community!
