Bowerman TC finds mutual interest with Lincoln High XC Program
The Lincoln High School Cross Country team continues its annual tradition of racing for a cause this Saturday evening, Oct. 7th, on their home track under the lights.
Raising money for a cause near and dear to the heart of Bowerman Track Club, LHSXC members are encouraged to raise a minimum of $20, with the proceeds heading directly to the Achon Uganda Children's Fund (AUCF).
Bringing together the celebration of community and competition, a series of 2mi races will be held on Lincoln High's track, helping provide the AUCF with the funds to continue its important work of improved healthcare, education, and exposure to sport in Ugandan communities.
In its 4th year, the Achon Distance Classic hopes to match last year's impressive $15,000 raised for the AUCF. Featuring six races, across all genders, ages, and ability, all one needs to enter is the encouraged $20 entry fee, which guarantees you a free, unique T-shirt, and the thrill of whizzing along Lincoln's spotlit track in the autumn twilight.

If you are looking for a race that won't demand quite as much from you, or your athletes as we get towards the later stages of the Cross Country season, please consider joining the event.
The Achon Distance Classic starts this Saturday, Oct. 7th, approximately at 6pm and ends about 9pm. For more information call or email Coach Suzanne Parry.
