What do I love about the Nike Border Clash? It is a celebration of all things cross country, cool weather, pitting runner against runner, over four thousand plus meters, as fans cheer the runners on to their greatest performances. On your mark, set, go! Run your heart out, pass one runner at a time, and when you get to that final three hundred meters, kick with all that you have! Many can not breath afterwards, then, comes that few minutes when you catch your breath, and talk to your fellow competitors, about races just run, and races in the future.
