2021.10.02 Cross Country: Judges Classic

Winchester, VA (October 2, 2021) - The solemn grounds of the first and second Civil War battles of Kernstown frame one of the most beautiful and challenging high school cross country courses in Northern Virginia. While most teams train on flat to rolling courses, this one demands that the competitors climb three big hills including one long one in the final half mile. By that time, even the refreshing sight of a straight downhill to the finish is a meager reward for the grueling course the runners have just navigated. Luckily, the early October weather was just about perfect and didn't add to the challenge the course had already served up.

Chas Sumser Photography was out on the course to capture the action and emotion and posted a gallery of images from the meet.
