Cross Country Season

13 08 2008

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Have you ever been to a cross country race?  If not, put one on your list.  Shelby Farms is the place and the fall provides many opportunities to see the young folks of the mid-South battle it out on foot.  Dust flying, gravel-crunching, grass-sliding FUN!  Get there early to learn the course and get to know the lay of the land.  Scout a good spot to see the runners race by — maybe more than once, but be sure to get to the starting line in time to see the kids take off.   Miss the start, and it’s like missing the starting kick-off (whatever that is).

Starting last month, cross-country spikes started arriving here in the store, and we’re happy to say that almost all of our shoes are finally in stock.  We’re carrying models from Nike, Brooks, and Saucony (including the Ryan Shay spike).  They range in price from $50-$60, and we happily give a 10% discount to local cross country kids — just tell us what school you run for!  For you folks visiting us from Corinth, Tupelo, Dyersburg, Obion County, Jonesboro, Jackson, Grenada, Greenville, and Columbus (and beyond), well, we consider you local, TOO!

For big cross-country excitement, don’t miss the Twilight Classic put on by Christian Brothers University, Brooks, and Fleet Feet Sports (yours, truly).  September 9th beginning at dusk, the races take place under the lights at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex.  To view a copy of the race brochure, visit here.
