Please join me in wishing Drew Harris the best of luck this weekend as he will be the lone NKU representative running in the men’s 10,000 meter championship race this weekend in Evansville, IN. For those of you interested in making the trip to University of Southern Indiana, it is a relatively painless 3 1/2 hour drive from Cincinnati, OH.
Just take I-71 south to Louisville, KY. Connect I-64 west, crossing over into Indiana, following I-64 100 miles to exit 29A which will connect you to I-264 south to Evansville. 13 miles south to exit 7B (Lloyd Expressway), then 10 miles west to S. Boehne Camp Road. This will put you right on campus and they will have shuttle service to the start& finish area.
They will charge $5.00 per vehicle for admission. Runners remember that you can cut through the woods on foot past the baseball field to get to the large grass field that is the start/finish area (USI may have this blocked off).
