Nevada Youth Cross Country Challenge – Race 1
Saturday, October 17, 2020
Floyd Lamb Park, Las Vegas, Nevada
Finally – Our First XC Meet of the Year!!!
After foregoing the spring track season and most of the cross country season due to COVID-19, three Las Vegas Elite Runners finally competed in their first cross country meet of the year Saturday, October 17, 2020.
While there were very few athletes at the meet, boy did it feel good to see the kids run and compete. After figuring out safety precautions, starting practices again and seeing our kids work hard, all were thrilled to witness them have fun competing in a real meet.
Big time congratulations to Jasiah Davis for his 1st place finish in the 8U Mens 2K!!! What a way to run in his very first cross country race and finish with a big kick. It brought everyone joy to see Jasiah’s hard work in practice translate to success in a race.
Congratulations are also in order for Roland Johns-Clemmons. Roland took home the second place medal in the same race. This is Roland’s second year running cross country in the Mens 8U Division. He started at the age of six and it is awesome seeing him continue in the sport.
Christoph Clemmons ran in his first 3K race after competing in the 2K race with his brother Roland last year. Many positives came out of his race. He finished the race, gained valuable experience, and had learning moments with his coaches that will allow him to have a better race his next time on the course.
