Bob Blastow 8/27

This past Saturday, August 20th, the XC Raiders took on their second 5K of the season at Bob Blastow! The Raiders packed even more than the previous raced, and many of the runners stepped up in their placement to one another this race! 

Team Race Outcomes 

The Varsity Boy’s ran their race through the foggy flats of McIntosh Reserve Park, where they worked out getting out fast and establishing position. As they raced through the mist, packs were established and the Raiders worked together to place in the top half of the field. As the sun began to peak through the fog, the Varsity Girl’s followed the boy’s initiative of getting out quicker, establishing placement and packs, and raced the second half of the race. A few hours later the JV squads stepped up, and while the conditions for the JV races were blazing with the thick sun humidity, both teams showed their strength by not only finishing the race but sticking to the racing plans.   

Personal Records Crushed
