            Litchfield Parks and Recreation will again host Thursday evening Cross Country races in Whites Woods, offering a 2K, 3K, 4K or 5K test to runners of all ages. All of the races begin and end in the activity field, near the rear of the White Memorial Museum at 6:30 p.m. every Thursday in July and August! The cost of the event is $2.00. That’s NOT a typo!!!

            Awards for age groups and over-all follow the event, with race director, Dave Driscoll handling the duties.

            This is a cross country race, so you must be aware of the terrain and be able to follow the course you are running as each course distance will “peel off” during the race but will all end at the same finish line!

            Runners are urged to arrive by 6:00 p.m in order to properly register and warm-up prior to the races, which will go on weather-permitting!!!

            Results will be posted on the Litchfield Parks and Recreation Website and the Litchfield Track Club website within a few days after the event.
