Pay Day for the White Cloud Cross Country Team
By Charles Chandler
On May 8th White Cloud Cross Country Coaches Joan Ludtke and Andrea Atwood and team members Kayla Pasch, Adrian Rodriguez and Hannah Brown met at the White Cloud Campground for a bit of happy business.
Woody Bowmen of Independent Bank in White Cloud presented the Cross Country Team with a $1000.00 check. The check was part of fundraising efforts and a donation for the Team’s management and logistical support for the Independent Bank Blue Blaze 10K, 5K runs and 5K walk during the 2016 Trail Town Celebration.
Their pre-run responsibilities included advertising, layout and grooming the trails. During the runs they started the runners, manned the checkpoints and water station, and helped with the medals awards ceremony and the clean up, all in all, a job well done. They plan to...
...assume the same functions for the 2017 Trail Town Celebration runs, with the addition of a new 10 mile run. That event is scheduled for September 30th and the races will start in the White Cloud Campground, and as last year, take place on the White Cloud Cross Country course and the North Country Scenic Trail. The Coaches recommended that you register early and start your training regimens early as these are trail runs over interesting and challenging courses.
Others attending the ceremony were Executive Director for the River County Chamber of Commerce Colleen Lynema, White Cloud City Manager Lora Kalkofen, White Cloud Chamber Representative Vicki Christensen and Charles Chandler Trail Town Celebration committee member.
