On November 7, 2020 CLCF held their first RI Cup at the Chafee Complex in Cranston, RI. The race format was Ekiden, which is a relay with teams of 4. There were 50 runners who competed from CLCF, Sentinel Striders and Surge. There were races for 7 to 14 years old. Runners 9+ ran a 3K, 2K, 2K and 3K for their legs. The 7-8 year olds ran a 2k, 1k., 1k and 2k for their legs. Thanks to Gatorade who gave us free bottles of Gatorade for our runners to consume. It was a lot of fun for the runners, coaches and parents. Thank to all who attended! Already planning 2021 Rhode Island Cup!
