Rochester Invitational One-Mile Run is Oct. 14

The fourth annual Rochester Invitational Cross Country One-Mile Run, open to all students in grades 1-8, will be held in conjunction with the all-city meet at 5:15 p.m. Oct. 14 at Eastwood Golf Course.

There is no entry fee and the first 75 to register will receive a free T-shirt. Those students must not currently be participating in a Minnesota sanctioned high school sport.

Check-in and race-day registration is from 4 to 4:45 p.m. the day of the meet.

Medallions will be given to the first three girls and boys overall finishers.

The run is being sponsored by Wells Fargo Bank, the Rochester Track Club and Minute Man Press.


Entry forms can be picked up at the Rochester Athletic Club, the activities desk at the YMCA and Play It Again Sports.

Need some yard work done? Call RCTC

Have yard work? You can hire Rochester Community and Technical College baseball and softball players to do the work for you.

"We have many young people who are ready and willing to do whatever task that you may have for them," RCTC head baseball coach Steve Hucke says. "No task is too big or too hard for our teams to help you out."

The donation is $5 hour for each athlete or a flat donation.

The proceeds will help pay for the cost of the baseball and softball teams' spring trips to Florida (baseball) and South Carolina (softball).

The event will take place the weekend of Nov. 6-7. Call the RCTC athletic office at 507-285-7273 to set up an appointment on one or both of those days and specify how many athletes will be needed.


Or you may arrange an appointment for anytime during the months of October, November, December and January by calling Hucke at 507-529-6298 or head softball coach Jean Musgjerd at 507-285-7561.
