Congratulations to all of those who participated in the Youth XC Series at Lansing Center Trail this morning! We had 71 finishers (across two races) and were delighted to host runners from our town of Lansing as well as those who traveled to us from neighboring towns (or farther!) Race results are below. Thank you for joining us! Best of luck to those who are going on to compete in the upcoming youth races at Groton (10/15) and Lower Buttermilk Falls (10/22). Hope to see you again next year at Lansing!
Calling all youth runners!!
Boys and girls, ages 7-13, are invited to participate in a cross country race at the Lansing Center Trail on October 8. Ages 7-8 run a 2K (1.24 mile) course at 9:00am and ages 9-13 run a 3K (1.86 mile) course at 9:30am. The Lansing XC teams will be staffing the race and cheering for the racers!
This is one of four youth races offered in the series (9/24 in Elmira, 10/15 in Groton, and 10/22 at Buttermilk Falls). Entry fee is $5 per runner, per race. Registration forms are available at the Lansing Recreation Department or lansingrec.com. Please note: you can register and pay with credit card thru NOON on Friday, 10/7. After this deadline, you must register on race morning. Cash and checks only, please.
It is strongly recommended that runners arrive early in order to have time to park, pick up their bib number, and review the course.
All finishers will receive ribbons. Race results will be posted on this site following the event.
Above all: this is a FUN event and a great opportunity for our youth runners to run along the beautiful route at Lansing Center Trail. We want runners to enjoy this experience and are looking forward to cheering for all those who come out on Saturday morning!
Please feel free to email Coach Becca Lovenheim with any questions.
