XC Meet - Sunday 10/6 Cancelled!

Some of you may be aware that the high school races at the Paul Short Run were cancelled yesterday due to "excessive heat."  A large number of collegiate athletes went down during their races and concerns about runner safety are high today.  Because of yesterdays events  and the concern for high temperatures and high humidity today, a large number of CYO teams are cancelling for today.  We have concerns about the ability to man all the marshaling positions with the decreased number of teams today.

Enjoy your day off!
