2021 Fundraiser for the Sabatos Scholarship Fund!
NAXC Alumni Race at North Park - July 31, 2021
The North Allegheny Cross Country (NAXC) Alumni run is a celebration of North Allegheny running, past and present. It is an event that we hope continues for many years into the future. Many of us have fond memories of participating in past NAXC Alumni runs. We want to ensure that future runners have that same opportunity to compete against past NAXC runners, but more importantly have a chance to meet and learn from runners from the past. Note that this event is open to anyone.
The course will be the same cross country course that the current team uses. It is fairly flat, with virtually the entire course on trails and grass.
There will be a competitive event between the current team and the Alumni. We will score (5 places) the men’s race and the women’s race, add the scores together, and declare a winner. If a tie, we will then include the 6th runner (more if necessary) to declare a winner. Essentially the same scoring as used in a standard cross country meet.
All Are Welcome
We want everyone to know that no matter what your ability is now, you are welcome to participate. Walkers are welcome.
8:00am - Men
8:45am - Women
This event benefits the Sabatos Scholarship Fund, which is awarded annually to a graduating male and female senior from the North Allegheny Cross Country (NAXC) teams. Founded in 1999, the scholarship honors students who best personify the qualities of leadership, enthusiasm, and achievement that Coach Sabatos radiated during his 13 years as head cross country coach at North Allegheny High School. During his tenure as head cross country coach he led his teams to 3 PIAA titles, 32 WPIAL (District 7) titles, and was a monumental influence in the lives of hundreds of student-athletes who were fortunate enough to run for him. To date over $33,000 in scholarships have been awarded to NAXC seniors.
