2019 High School Cross Country Meets

The Annapolis Striders XC 5K Team held its first XC 5K event of the season at the Annapolis Area Christian School – Upper School campus in Severn, MD on Thursday, July 18, 2019.  With temperatures in the upper 90’s and heat index values in the upper 100’s serious consideration was given to the cancellation of this event.  The cancellation of the race was averted due to preventative measures taken by the XC 5K Team with the supply of ample ice and water for the participants.

This race was modified from a distance of 5K to 3 miles due to the discovery on race day that the CHS athletic field was being used by the school for lacrosse practice.  Since the 5K race normally finishes within the stadium on the athletic field, we were told that the finish line would be outside the stadium near where the XC race started.  Other than that the race went off without a hitch.
