Solid Performances for Georgian Bat Coyotes Track Club at AO XC Champs

Posted On: Sunday, November 11, 2018

On Sunday, November 11th, Seneca College - King City Campus hosted the Athletics Ontario Cross Country Championships and it was definitely a course to remember.  In fact, it was one of the toughest courses our team has been exposed to over the last 8 years.  It was very hilly, extremely technical, with endless twists and turns, a plethora of tree roots to maneuver around, 0'C temps, a chilling breeze and MUD!  An additional challenge with the width of the trails made life interesting.  A few spots allowed runners to spread out 3-4 across, while other sections narrowed to single lines of passage, making passing impossible....Oh....and even more MUD!
