RUNNING IS ABOUT MEMORIES.
When was the last time you competed at Tiger-Grizz? Well, that was too long ago. It's time to dust off your spikes, form a team with your favorite mates, and relive your cross country glory days. If you've never run an XC race, it's time to join the community. Teams are encouraged to come up with a team name, a team uniform, and a team cheer. We want to hear you at the starting line.

COSTUME CONTEST: Prizes will be awarded to the team with the best "uniform". Something as simple as matching tutus or t-shirts qualifies as a uniform.
It all started in 1837 at Shrewsbury School in England. The student body, desiring to reenact their fathers' hunts, created a running sport called "Hares and Hounds".
Two "hares" ran ahead leaving a paper trail to follow. Other students assumed the role of hunters and hounds and tried to catch them.
Much has changed in cross country but the thrill of the chase remains. Of course now, while you're running up hills and jumping logs,...
Try not to bay at the runner in front of you.
