Cross Country is tough. If it was easy, they’d call it football.

4 09 2015

15722_fullIt’s our favorite time of year – Cross Country season!  Shelby Farms, Audubon Park, Johnson Park, and many others around the area are full of middle schooler, high schooler, and collegiate runners trotting across fields, scampering uphill, and thundering downhill.  In many cases, their coaches are running alongside them and some parents take an opportunity to get a few miles in as well.

This Saturday night is the Memphis Brooks Twilight Classic.  A cross country meet that we’ve been happy to be involved with since it began over 10 years ago.  What started out with a few hundred kids has grown, and spectators at this year’s meet will see over 3000 kids competing!

If you’re needing some inspiration this is a must-see.  Would you like to get your kids into running?  This is the perfect setting to get pumped about cross country.  There’s no other meet like it on the planet (as far as we know), and it’s well worth the $5 parking fee.  This is the most exciting single night of sports in Memphis!

For a great preview of this years meet, check out what Coach Ted had to say on Tennessee Runner MileSplit.

And errrbody knows who Flotrack is – here’s the highlight reel from last year’s meet.

If you’re heading to Mike Rose to run the meet and need some go fast shoes, we’ve got ’em!  Here are a few that we stock.

We hope to see you running or watching Twilight with us tomorrow!

May you run like the wind,
