About the Course
The Mid-East Cross Country Championships course runs throughout a city park. The terrain is mostly flat with one rather steep, short hill that is crossed twice. The footing is typical city park turf — some of it crosses playing fields and the course does go though a wooded area. Often, this path is covered in mulch, but it does wear away and there are occational exposed roots in this section. It's also worth noting that runners will cross a creek twice and sections of the course do not drain well. As a result, they can get muddy in rainy weather.
