Bonding experience for SV cross country Bobcats complete continuous 400-mile relay in July
August 24, 2011Sky View High School
For 18 members of Sky View's cross country program, completing a 5-kilometer race during the prep season is going to seem like a walk in the park.
At least it should for these particular runners, who, along with coaches Kyle Wright and Jared Storrs, combined to run a grueling 400-mile continuous relay - patterned after the ultra-popular Logan-to-Park City Ragar Relay Wasatch Back - last month.
Wright, the Bobcats' head coach, came across a story in a runners magazine about a high school team that had planned a similar event prior to its upcoming season, and decided it would be a worthwhile endeavor for his program.
