The ISU Centennial Cross Country Course, dedicated in 2002 and host of the 2002 Big Sky Cross Country Championships, features both a larger 3-kilometer loop and a shorter 2-kilometer cutoff route. The surface varies from natural clay soil and wood chip cover throughout its length. Many of the maintenance challenges arise from erosion control and overgrowth during the wet spring months and late summer thunderstorms. The clay surface often becomes unusable when wet and easily erodes during heavy rain or snowmelt. Besides the pavilion and recently repaired benches, no permanent facilities exist on site. Improvement in maintenance and physical structures would create a more useful and sustainable area for all users.
Your donation will help with the maintenance of the course. In addition donations will help us improve the course. Some planned improvements would be to install a drinking fountain, increase the grassy area and make upgrades to the landscaping around the beginning of the course.
