Lansing High School's cross country team has a new home course! With support from Steve Colt and the Lansing Recreation Department, the Lansing Center Trail hosts 1.5, 1.9, and 3 mile routes on which modified and high school runners will train and race. The course is entirely grass trails and features great spectator viewing. Fans will be able to watch the start from a raised viewing area, see runners pass by the one- and two-mile mark, and then watch a sprint to the finish -- all from one vantage point.
Over the summer, Lansing Recreation Department's cross country camp was held at the new course, and captains' practices were often run on the trails. The Lansing Pathways Committee has poured such care and dedication into these trails, and the Recreation Department has been so helpful in creating a new starting and specator area. With Ian Golden of Red Newt Racing and Finger Lakes Running & Triathlon Company providing his expertise in creating the course route, the Bobcats are proud to be running at this location.
It's a beautiful new place to call home.
