XC Relive the USATF Clubs National Cross Country Champs, thanks to Tom Bernhard’s race videos and Phil Yearian photos!

Posted by on Dec 12, 2022 in pausatf | 0 comments

    What a day it was! Following the first two races, due to the water-logged soil from the recent and race day rains, an entire tree fell across the start line, narrowly and fortunately missing runners and spectators in that area.
