The rain stopped just in time for our varsity squads to set up our 1.5 mile and 5K courses at the Lansing Center Trail. For the last three years, LCT has been host to our program's home course, and we are incredibly grateful to the Town of Lansing, the Lansing Recreation Department, and the Friends of the Lansing Center Trail for their support. While development of the land will bring an end to our racing there, we plan to continue to train on the surrounding trails and look forward to the next chapter of on-campus racing once again.

It was the 66th running of the Baldwinsville Invitational -- but only the first time in recent memory that Lansing made the trip to the Durgee Junior High campus for an invitational that promised personal records.
True to its word, the invitational was flat, fast, and exciting.
With just five girls, the varsity Ladycats finished 3rd of 31 teams in the small school varsity race.
The varsity boys and both modified squads also embraced the opportunity to run alongside fields of over 200 runners per race, through trails and along paths lines with spectators, and personal best efforts resulted all around.
The Trumansburg Raiders moved their home course off campus to the Trumansburg Golf Course. No athlete had seen the course before -- so the squads from Trumansburg, Lansing and Marathon took a course walk together before the races got underway.
Fall is in the air! Our Lansing harriers started off on a challenging course that they'll see several times this season and they look strong.
