7th Annual Robert Cipriano Run set for Monday, October 15, 2018
The seventh annual Robert Cipriano Cross-Country Run will get underway at 4 pm Monday, October 15 at Dearborn’s Ford Field Park, 500 Monroe St. The event features runners in fourth through eighth grade from across the Dearborn Public Schools District. Sixth, seventh and eighth grade students will run two-mile races starting this year with the girls at 4 p.m. followed by the boys at 4:25. Fourth and fifth grade boys and girls will participate in races against others of their grade and gender. Those one-mile races start at 4:50.
Once again, the district has teamed up with the Dearborn Track Club and the City of Dearborn to coordinate the event. Last year, close to 800 students signed up for the meet, but cool, rainy weather kept many away on the day of the race. The run takes place rain or shine. However, for safety reasons it could be canceled in case of severe weather such as lightning, thunder, heavy rains and/or winds. In the case of bad weather, students and parents are asked to visit the Dearborn Athletics Blog at http://athletics.dearbornschools.org to check the status of the race.
