Close to 1,700 athletes from more than 300 high schools will participate in the OFSAA cross-country running championships on Saturday, Nov. 2.
A pre-OFSAA cross-country race will be held on Sept. 27. More than 825 athletes from more than 50 high schools will get a preview of the courses on the trails surrounding the Laurentian University Community Track Complex.
“Runners will be coming from the four corners of the province to see what Sudbury has to offer,” said co-convenor David Gallant.
“We were expecting the pre-OFSAA event to primarily attract northern high schools, but were pleasantly surprised by the distances some schools are travelling to run the upcoming OFSAA course. We are delighted with the enthusiastic participation.”
