That Goofy Trail Run 10K report
Thirty six runners contested the inaugural of the Goofy - the first of six races in The Starting Block 2008 Cross Country series. Also new to the trail series this year are five year age categories, replacing the previous ten year increments. (XC series scoring will be the same as last year, a minimum of three races to a maximum of five to compete for the five deep series age-category awards. Age-graded scoring is not included with the trail series.)
