“We are really excited to be able to offer yet another opportunity for younger athletes to participate in cross country with the implementation of this series” said Gabriel LeBlanc, Executive Director of Athletics New Brunswick “The school cross country season is relatively short due to the weather in our province, but with these new competition events we hope to see more participation and excitement built around cross country events” added LeBlanc.
