All the runs will start at the South Pavilion near the Beach parking lot.

Why We Run.

High school cross country is an amazing sport that teaches young athletes a variety of  life lessons.  The Drip Drop Trail Run will help your team work  towards a solution for a global crisis: the shortage of clean drinking water.  Thirst is a cause that all runners can relate to.  We are fortunate in this country to be able to go the the local grocery store and buy bottled water in any quantity that we choose, or simply turn on our faucets in our homes and fill a glass with drinking water.   There are villages and towns all over the globe that are not as fortunate.  Their women and children get up before sun-up every day to walk miles in search of clean drinking water to bring back to their villages.  The Drip Drop Trail Runalong with your help, is partnering with  Living Water International to help fight the water crisis.  We are giving you the tools.  Now it’s up to you and your team  to use the endurance event to better your team and change the world.
