ARPXC to host the FHSAA State Cross Country Finals through 2016

Visit Tallahassee announced today in a press release that the Apalachee Regional Park Championship Cross Country Course will continue to be the home of the FHSAA State Cross Country Meet through 2016. Here's the release:

Apalachee Regional Park Secures FHSAA State Championship Through 2016 Leon County to Host Cross Country Championship for an Additional Two Years

Leon County’s Apalachee Regional Park will host the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) cross country championships for the next two years. The announcement was made by FHSAA Executive Director Dr. Roger Dearing and Leon County Division of Tourism Development (Visit Tallahassee) Executive Director Lee Daniel.

The 2015 FHSAA state championships for boys and girls will be held November 7. The Leon County Apalachee Regional Park has hosted the event for the past three years. Dates for the 2016 championship meet will be announced at a later date.

“Apalachee Regional Park is one of the nation’s premier cross country facilities that provides a fantastic experience for our student-athletes and we are pleased with the continued partnership with Visit Tallahassee and Leon County Schools,” Dr. Dearing said.

The FHSAA championship is one of four major cross country meets planned for the Apalachee Regional Park in 2015. Others include the Florida State University (FSU) Cross Country Invitational on October 2, the FSU Cross Country Invitational Pre-State Meet for high schools on October 3 and the Atlantic Coast Conference Cross Country Championships on October 30.

“The success of Apalachee Regional Park in being recognized as a premier cross country facility is a perfect example of the strength of partnerships,” said Lee Daniel, Director of Leon County Division of Tourism Development. “We worked with Florida State University and the local running community, through Gulf Winds Track Club, in designing the facility and are delighted that FHSAA will bring its championship meets here for the next two years.”

The Leon County Apalachee Regional Park has already secured the 2016 NCAA South Regional championship meet. It hosted the FHSAA State Championship last fall, which attracted 221 teams, 1,480 participants and more than 5,000 visitors to the 140-acre facility. The community saw an influx of $2.3 million in direct spending from the event. The championship was one of three major cross country meets held at the facility last year. These three events attracted nearly 5,000 participants, 9,500 total visitors and generated nearly $3.8 million in direct spending.

The Leon County Division of Tourism Development (Visit Tallahassee) is the official tourism marketing organization for Tallahassee and Leon County, Florida, promoting tourism to the area through direct sales, advertising, public relations, sports, film, product development and visitor services.

Gibson and Parrish keep on winning at the Brian Dowling 5K

Myles GibsonTwo weeks after a road win in the Dothan, Alabama, Fit To Fight 10K, Myles Gibson was back in town for a test on the South Alabama trails. The occasion was 16 May 2015 running of the Dothan Runners' annual Brian Dowling Memorial 5K Trail Race in Westgate Park. When the Saturday morning race was over, Gibson had another Dothan championship to his credit, having run the 3.1-mile course in 18:26. 2014 women's champ CJ Parrish successfully defended her Brian Dowling 5K title, placing eighth overall in 24:25.


Soon after the start the run became a race between two athletes, Gibson, the Donalsonville master runner, and William Pearson, a Campbellsville University cross-country runner. Racing close, Gibson and Pearson left the rest of the field far behind, finishing the five-kilometer run nearly a kilometer ahead of the next runner. In the end Gibson prevailed over Pearson, 18:26 to 18:36. Master runner Bo Thurman was a distant third in 23:05. Master runner Tony Gilbert was fourth in 23:34, and Austin Long edged John Knopp 23:47 to 23:51 for fifth.


Gibson and Pearson may have been a kilometer ahead of the rest of the men's field, but CJ Parrish didn't have nearly that big a lead in the women's competition. Still, Parrish's 24:25 was good enough for a repeat win while putting her 100 meters ahead of the women's runner-up. Behind Parrish, Kimberly Floyd and master runner Val Lichner were in a fight for the second women's spot. Lichner got the nod at the finish line, placing ninth overall in 24:50 while Floyd came in tenth overall in 24:52. Master runner Tara Whaley was fourth in the women's standings, 19th overall in 28:40. The fifth female finisher was Kristi Holland, 20th overall in 28:47.


50 athletes finished the 2015 Brian Dowling Memorial 5K Trail Run.
