The Greenville boys and girls cross country teams are gearing up for their big meet this Saturday, September 4th, 2010 —the Treaty City Cross Country Invitational.
If you have never been out by the Greenville Park for this annual event – tomorrow is your chance to do so. Over 1000 high school athletes will descend upon the park on this invitational. Chairman, Ed Porter stated that over 80 teams are scheduled to participate- which is up 8 teams from last year.
The event is a fundraiser for the Greenville Athletic Department, Greenville Athletic Boosters, as well as the Cross Country Team. The club also provides many of the volunteers for the race. Porter said the volunteers are key to the race being successful. There have been people already helping out, getting the course in race shape, and will be doing many different things during the day, including parking. The city’s parks department has also been hard at work getting the grounds around the park ready for the runners.
Please come out and support the Greenville Athletic Booster Concession Stand Located next to the Masonic Temple Lodge. A wide variety of food will be available including marinated chicken breast, shredded chicken and grilled cheeseburgers. The Greenville Cross Country Team will be selling T-Shirts as well.
