The Saint Mary’s University Cross Country team would love for you to join us for a true Cross Country/Trail race that is both challenging but accessible to all ages and levels of ability. It is a beautifully shaded grass course on the trails in the bluffs of Saint Mary’s University’s campus. SMU CC hosts this as a team fundraiser where all the funds go back into their program. We also feel very strongly about the lack of off-road 5k options and want to let more individuals experience the joy of running on grass and in nature. This event allows for both competitive and recreational individuals.
The Saint Mary’s Trail Scamper, a 5K run/walk through the trails of Saint Mary’s University, is a fund-raising effort for the Cardinal men’s and women’s cross country programs. The race, however, is more than just about raising money. Saint Mary’s has a unique situation — boasting such an extensive, beautiful trail system as part of the University’s property — and has been looking for ways to share it with more than just the campus community.
Enter the Saint Mary’s Trail Scamper.
This mid-summer event is a good opportunity to get more people exposed to our remarkable trails, which are well-maintained, free of traffic (bicycles, rollerbladers, etc.) and are well-shaded. It is a great place to escape for a run or walk in nature and is open to the community.
The Saint Mary’s cross country program would like to invite anyone who is interested to come and participate in the event. All runners and walkers will have a good experience and will give the athletes an experience they can take with them into the their post-collegiate endeavors. Besides, how often is it that college athletes are the ones cheering and supporting other sports enthusiasts?
Awards will be given to the top overall male and female competitors and the top three finishers in each age category for males and females. Age categories are: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40- 49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 and over
