Nicholas Fillinger Memorial Run 4th Annual


Cross country type of course primarily on the natural surface of well-groomed trails. There is a short segment on pavement. The course is rolling and very scenic. The starting line location is next to the gymnasium adjacent to the softball and baseball fields.


As you enter the campus, bear to the left at the “Y” intersection and follow the signs for the gymnasium. There is a large parking lot at the gymnasium and the tennis courts. There will be parking attendants to assist you.

Nicholas loved Cross Country more than track because of the team nature of the sport. In his honor, there is a team division that allows participants to compete as individuals and teams.

Last year the team name and the uniform competition was a big hit; that will happen again this year.

Teams must be at least five people. Teams may be co-ed.

Teams MUST pre-register. There will be no race-day creation of groups.

Have fun with your team name and uniform (although uniform is not required)
We encourage high school teams to use this race as a kick-off event for summer training!!
