General Course Information:
The TUXC course is a course developed on the Taylor University Farm. This course is located approximately 1.5 miles west of the Taylor University campus on the corner of E 600 S & S 800 E 46989 (labeled as the Taylor Wilderness on Google maps). The course is 100% grass with a mixture of rolling hills. All mile and kilometer marks will be clearly marked.
“I have enjoyed every minute coaching these men and women this season,” Head Coach Chip Wilson said. “The environment has been positive and the work ethic has been excellent. We have been discussing the idea of preparation and the confidence that should come knowing we have prepared well. Our goal is to take the last few months of training and mileage and put together a great team race. We have talented men’s and women’s teams, but more importantly we have a team that never quits. Our league is very deep, and it will be exciting to be involved in a race like this.”
