From the desk of Coach John Allison:
It's that time again! Vilonia Cross Country will host the 4th annual Fly Like an Eagle 5K and 1 Mile Kids Fun Run on April 22, 2017. The 5K starts at 8 AM and the Fun Run follows immediately after. You can register at viloniaeagle5k.org.
Every finisher in both the 5K and the Fun Run gets a medal. Every participant who signs up by April 7, gets a t-shirt guaranteed in their size. Anyone registering after April 7th will get a t-shirt while any extras last. We also have awards three deep for male and female finishers in overall, masters, and grandmasters categories, as well as three deep age group awards.
This is a flat and fast certified course, but we welcome everyone -- fast, slow, and anywhere in between. Have a kid and want to push a stroller on the course? No problem. Want to walk the whole way? No problem.
So join us for a great race to support a great cause!
Vilonia Cross Country athletes practice from May through the end of the season in November. They run countless miles and spend untold hours getting ready to compete. Last year the VHS girls were state 5A runners up, the boys were the year before. This year, both teams plan to make a run at the state title. Both junior high teams won the 5A West conference meet and plan to be the best again this year.
Thank you in advance for your support!
