Welcome to the 2013 Eurocross! Eurocross is a combination of the athleticism and spectator attraction of steeplechase with the challenge and varied terrain of cross-country. The 5K race involves running multiple loops of a 1K grass and dirt course with creek crossings. The 8K race is run on a challenging 2K course.
The challenge of the Eurocross lies in hurdling hay bales, sloshing through a creek, running through a forested section and grunting up one short, but steep hill. The grass course provides a refreshing break from the road. The entire course is visible from the spectator area.
