Twelve people ran the racecourse that included city streets, campus sidewalks and the KCU Knight’s Stadium. Cold damp weather, slippery leaves and streets made for  challenging conditions but all the runners rallied and finished the race.


Soccer coaches and the KCU Cross Country team helped with the event. Professor Dr. Dean Brand, a National Guards veteran, who ran in the race was recognized and thanked for his service. A prayer was offered at the end of the event, and all runners will receive a t-shirt.
