Chris Miland to run at Nike Border Clash

Nike sponsors a cross country meet every year where the top runners from Oregon and Washington race. It is called the Nike Border Clash, and it is one of the coolest races you will ever see. A large cannon acts as the starting gun. A helicopter flies over head filming the entire race. Spectators can watch the race on huge TVs that are at various places on the course. Drummers walk along the course drumming in rhythm during the race. The course is run on the incredible Nike World Headquarters outside of Portland. It is quite an experience.

Based on his finish at the state meet, Chris was an alternate for this race. Yesterday, however, he received a phone call from Nike informing him that someone had to drop out, and that he was in.

The race is Sunday, November 20th. Good luck Chris!
