The course was through a local wooded park and it wound up hill and down. It was laid out in such a way that with a short walk spectators could view the race at several different points.
It was interesting to watch the race progress and see how the runners went from a pack to individuals.
There were 172 runners in the boys' race. Allen finished 103rd. Not bad for a freshman in his first year of running.
Now Allen starts his winter training in anticipation of the track season...
