“It is important to have a home course to train on and to hold home races,” said head coach Brian Hull. “This is a great opportunity for the program. It will allow people who have never been to a race to see what our men and women train for. Our runners are excited to have friends and family come out. It is exciting to be at a race and experience it. The course is spectator friendly.”
