■ Youth cross country
running series scheduled
Crosby-Ironton cross country teams will host a new cross country youth race series starting this fall.
Races will be at the Cuyuna Range Elementary School campus in Crosby on Mondays at 6 p.m. beginning Sept. 9 and running through Oct. 7. All area youths from preschool through sixth grade are welcome to participate.
Race distances range from one-half to one mile depending on age. Parents are welcome and encouraged to run with their kids. Preregistration is not required for this free race/running series.
All participants will receive place ribbons for each run, and medals will be awarded to those youths completing four of the five runs.
You can run for any or all of the days. Times will be kept to show improvement, but the focus will be on fun, fitness, and finishing.
You may contact Chris McCusker with any questions, or to volunteer with the runs, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 319-541-5580.
