Cross country team hosts alumni race
The North Kingstown High School cross country team will hold their third annual Alumni Cross Country race on Friday, Aug. 24, at Goddard Park in East Greenwich.
The race will start at the second public bathroom facility and follow the Brown Invitational course route.
The one-half mile kids race will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the 5K race will start at 6 p.m.
There will also be a team championship to see who has the best alumni/combined team. An alumni/combined team may be comprised of three runners in any combination of alumni and undergraduates with at least one alumni runner, and must be declared at registration. This fun event is open to all runners.
At the conclusion of the race there will be a flickerball game and a cookout for all participants.
The race is held as a fund-raiser due to recent budget cuts and will help support the NK cross-country program.
Donations for the race are $15 for the 5K, and $5 for the kids race. Pre-registration can be mailed to Keven O'Neil, 141 Prospect Ave., North Kingstown, RI 02853; called in to 294-6086/295-1805; or e-mailed to keven_o'neil@nksd. net or firstname.lastname@example.org.
