Fordland “Iron Mtn. Invitational” October 22nd

Posted: October 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

This is from the meet director at Fordland:

Fordland will host our 11th annual “Iron Mtn Run” on Tuesday, October 22nd.  After an experimental year on the grass, this year we plan to go back to the old road course.  While the old course is not nearly as fan friendly as last years’ course, it is a nice challenging run for those preparing to run the hilly Oak Hills State Championship course.  This year we have also rearranged the starting times back in the races, putting the High School races back to the beginning (due to traffic issues).  In addition to the plaques that were introduced in the Jr. High division last year, we have also added an additional 5 medals to each Jr. High race.  Finally, we are hoping to bring back our traditional apples at the finish area for the competitors (and coaches).   The course begins and ends at Fordland High School.

Varsity Boys 4:00 PM
