The Murray Invitational stands out as one of the largest races on the schedule with more than 50 high schools competing. On Friday, Sept. 6, the Morgan High Cross Country team participated in the competition. The race is characterized by large crowds and many false starts. Several times before each of the rookie, JV, and varsity races, the starting gun goes off only to be followed by a chorus of guns several seconds later indicating someone has fallen and the race needs to start again. This is emotionally and physically taxing on runners as they sprint start several times before a clean start allows them to settle into a race pace. Add to this temperatures in the high 90s and the event can be exhausting.
