Meet Information

Trimble County Cross Country Backwoods Invitational

The Trimble County Cross Country team invites your team to come to the Trimble County Backwoods Invitational in Bedford, Ky on Saturday August 27th, 2016. This once large meet is back and we hope to restart the tradition we once had of great competitive racing at a high quality run meet. We will have Varsity 5k races and Middle School Elementary 3k races. The race will be located at the Trimble County park just a few miles north of the Trimble County High School.

When: Saturday August 27th, 2016
Varsity Boys 5k: 9:30am
Varsity Girls 5k: 10:15am

Course: The course at the Trimble County Park is fast yet challenging. Both races start on the youth football field and head to the back of the park where runners will turn into the woods for some time on the park trails before coming back out into the open to complete the rest of the loop. 5k will complete the loop a 2nd time and 3k runners will head for the finish which is right by the starting line.

Our course is EXTREMELY spectator friendly allowing parents and coaches to see about 2/3 of the race from the tent area.

The course will be measured to exact distance and groomed well on race day.
