James Monroe High School Outstanding Support to Local Runners
The Fredericksburg Area Running Club (FARC) would like
to give a special thank you to the
James Monroe High School Athletic and
Administrative Department for
their outstanding continual strong support to
the local Fredericksburg Running Community.
successfully conducted an All Comer's Track Meet Series each summer for the
22 years with the assistance of JMHS. In 2016, the Club conducted a
total of 20 track meets each Tuesday
night during a relatively cool summer.
The 2016 end count metrics had 243 runners show up to enjoy the
held at JMHS Track. The spectrum of participants ranged from young a 9
old to a 60 years old runner(both were pretty fast!!!). The experience level of
the participants included Grade School, Middle School,
Home School, High
School, Collegiate and Master Runners who came as far from Richmond to DC for
the Tuesday night race events.
FARC is able to achieve many of
our running goals due to the kindness and support Dr. Gordon (Fredericksburg
Public Schools Administration)
and his fine team. JMHS had been the enabler
to FARC and the community this summer. We salute the school for enhancing
Fredericksburg runner's opportunities and invite the public to checkout
