Harriers Run Mystery Fartlek at Newhall
Returning just 3 days after racing on its gravel trails at the final DAL Center Meet of the season, the Cougar harriers convened at Concord's Newhall Park on Saturday for a critical workout in preparation for the approaching league championships.

With 20 minutes of running as part of the performance warm up and another 5 minutes of easy cool down, most athletes accumulated 75 minutes of quality mileage for the day.
