The course is a combination of dirt and grass through rugged wooded areas and beautiful Christmas tree fields, perfect for a 5K! The money raised through registration, merchandise sells and donations go into a scholarship fund.
Each year a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 is awarded to a graduating senior that is a member of the Bainbridge High School XC team. And a scholarship to the Duke TIP University program is also awarded to an eligible student each summer.
