    HS events range from 1500 to 3000 with a few 5000 races like Penn. College is 3000 indoors and 5000 outdoors. Nothing too arduous for those highly skilled coaches to handle.

    Some members of the RW Committee & Council are still of the opinion that a woman might drop her uterus if she were to RW 50km. To them, it's still 1919, not 2019.
