The Men’s and Women’s Cross Country teams hosted the 9th Annual Across the State Relay on Saturday, September 12th.
The annual charity fundraiser was a 13-hour, 140 mile, journey from the Crystal River to Daytona Beach. Members of the cross country teams raced in pairs, starting the race by dipping a half-liter water bottle “baton” into the Crystal River. From there the pairs ran across the panhandle where the final leg had the runners dip the “baton” into the Atlantic Ocean at Daytona Beach.
Over the past eight years, the Seminole Cross Country team has annually donated over $5,000 to the United Way.
