Randolph XC to Compete in Virginia 4-Miler
LYNCHBURG, VA – The Virginia 4-Miler has been run in conjunction with the Virginia 10-Miler since 1999, with some of those early races ending on Rivermont Ave. However, the race now ends on steps of Randolph's Main Hall, and the Randolph College cross country team will once again look to set great times in the demanding race.
The race is one of the most difficult that the WildCats will run in during the year. The natural hills of Lynchburg make the elevation climbs more than what the 'Cats will see at any race. It sets up nicely for the hilly Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) championships at the end of October. However, the course is also taxing because it is run entirely on pavement.
Despite these conditions, the teams showed very well at last year's event. Alex Clem led the men with a time of 24:10, taking the 11th overall spot. Baylee Snead and Taylor Rama went 1-2 for the women's team, finishing in 42nd and 44th overall.
If you want to cheer on the WildCats as they cross the finish line, get to front campus early as the race begins at 8 a.m.
