Runnin' Cadet Classic Loads The Line

MileSplit NY - As we get into the season of State Standards, Relay meets no are no more, as the big Invitationals are coming out to play.  We'll be live at the Lions Club Invite this weekend, but another meet will be broadcasting live, and it is one to watch, as it brings the top athletes in the area to a new kind of competition.  Cover Photo by Ron K.

What makes this meet truly different?


1.        “The Glavin”
“The Glavin” is in memory of Pete Glavin, resident of the Hilton School District and former meet director of the McQuaid Cross Country Invitational.  Pete’s influence on the Rochester area running community extends well beyond McQuaid and Hilton.  Pete was also co-founder of the Genesee Valley Harriers.  Pete is and will continue to be missed.  “The Glavin” is a collection of the best distance runners in the area to run 3200m (boys) and 3000m (girls).  “The Glavin” will be run during the Saturday Night Showdown.
