2019 Recap:

The 3rd Annual CFFR was a success, with great weather and the best turnout so far! While we could have asked for the Race Day weather to be a couple of degrees cooler, there was a nice breeze that helped a lot. We had nearly 90 participants this year, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We again had a large contingent of runners from Brehm Preparatory School, as well as a good showing from the Unity Point Cross Country Team along with many others. We want to offer a great, big thank you to all of our sponsors, participants, and volunteers for making this event a success. Our major sponsors included Saluki Athletics, SIH and the Carbondale Park District, along with many other individual and corporate donors.
