The 2A District and Regional cross country meet is being held in Columbus Junction tonight, and two out of the 13 teams are from the area.

The teams include:

Albia, Central Lee- Donellson, Columbus Junction, Danville, Davis County-Bloomfield, Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont, Louisa-Muscatine, Mediapolis, Mid-Prairie, northeast-Goose lake, Pella Christian, Tipton, Wapello and West Burlington-Notre Dame.

Columbus Junction head coach Steve Riley says it’s nice to run at home, because it’s only a five minute drive.

“Basically we have a five minute drive down the hill to Cedar Crest Golf Course, and we’ve been on this course running, obviously with our own meet, but we’ve down a lot of practicing there, just trying to get familiar with the course, it is a unique course with a lot of hills,” Riley said. “We’ve just tried to get very accustomed to the hills and that course.”

Running starts in Columbus tonight at 4:00 tonight.
