EHS harriers pitching in with community service

The Hornet Team recently helped with the Miner’s Day 5K run in Black Diamond, and will be moving on to other projects later this summer.

Members of the Enumclaw High School cross country program are using the summer to tackle a couple of community service projects.

On July 7, the team helped with the Miner’s Day 5K run in Black Diamond; providing pre-race registration assistance, corner workers, crews at the start/finish line and event timing. In return, the organizers and sponsors of the event made a financial donation to the Hornet Harriers that will help reduce out-of-pocket costs for EHS runners making the annual trip to the 3-Course Challenge in Seaside, Oregon.

Next on the team’s service calendar is Nolte State Park Trail Maintenance Day. Over the last three years the team has partnered with Washington State Parks staff to protect and improve the Deep Lake perimeter trail by spreading crushed rock along high-traffic areas. Nolte State Park serves as the team’s home course during the fall cross country season.
