Taft cross country runners to get down and dirty in Tillamook

Replacing four key varsity boys runners who made an appearance at State last season is among Taft High cross country coach Mandy Weiss’ chief goals. However, having fun in one of the state’s most unique races is assured Saturday, when the Tigers join hundreds of racers for the Ultimook Challenge in Tillamook.

“We have many freshman who have shown up to run, and they are running with such passion and have the ability to secure a spot on varsity and continue the path toS in the next few years,” she said.

The spectator-friendly Tillamook race offers a true cross country experience with two river crossings, a mud pit, a mile of wood-chipped trails and one-half mile on packed gravel.

A return to State is among the team’s chief goals, but getting the girls team there is also on the docket this season, Weiss said.

“The dedication to keep running through injuries, exhaustion, and pain” is among the squad’s chief goals, she said.
