You have probably heard of obstacle races like “Warrior Dash,” the “Savage Race,” and the “Tough Mudder.” Well, Darlington School is proud to announce that we will be hosting our own cross-country obstacle race for students second through eighth grade on Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. (check-in starts at 2 p.m.).
This student-designed obstacle course should be a lot of fun for all involved and all students who are able to run the race are welcome to participate. Parents, students, families, and other spectators are invited to come cheer on the runners. Each race will combine both the boys and girls of that specific grade for a total of eight different races. The approximate length of the course for all grade levels will be one mile.
