The Tornados men’s and women’s cross country teams marked off a two-mile course surrounding the back area of the BC campus, including the BC track. The BC Cross Country team was joined by runners from the men’s Brevard High School team as they lined the course by marking every 200 meters and setting out cones and jack o’ lanterns every 400 meters as the teams guided the middle school runners through the course.

I encourage all who had a good time at the event to keep it up."
