On Saturday, September 28 at 8:30 am the Lincoln Academy Cross Country Team will host a 5K race on the LA trails. This is the second annual LA Homecoming 5K that will take place during Lincoln Academy Homecoming Weekend.

Registration will begin at 7:45 am on the day of the race in Lincoln Academy’s lower back parking lot between the baseball field and tennis courts. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for students. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers, with an extra prize drawing for people who celebrate their Eagle Pride by dressing in black and white for the race. All ages and skill levels from walkers to runners are encouraged to participate.

The LA cross country team has had unprecedented success in the last two seasons, with the boys team winning the Class B State Championship in 2017 and coming in second in the state in 2018. Their only home meet of the 2019 season will kick off LA Homecoming Weekend on Thursday, September 26, with the girls race at 4 pm and the boys race at 4:30 pm. Spectators can watch the meet from the parking lot near the LA baseball field.

Members of the LA cross country team will be on hand at the Homecoming Hustle on September 28 to help out on the course and run along with friends, family, and fans.
