(Aurora, Ind.) – Five races in five weeks will determine southeastern Indiana’s quickest distance runner.
The Southeastern Indiana Racing Circuit, or SIRC, gets started with the Knight Flight 5K in Aurora on Saturday, July 13.
Other 5Ks to follow on the 2019 SIRC schedule are the Trojan Trot in St. Leon on July 20, the Lakeside 5K in Brookville on July 27, the Indian Trails 5K in Milan on August 3, and the Bulldog Chase in Batesville on August 10.
Runners who complete each race will have their times added up. The male and female with the lowest combined time will be named SIRC champions.
The reigning SIRC-it champions from 2018 are 15-year-old Each Loichinger, a sophomore-to-be at Batesville High School, and 16-year-old Emilee Wedding, a senior-to-be East Central High School graduate.
Funds raised by the 5Ks go to benefit each high school’s cross country teams. Pre-registration cost is $20 for each race with a t-shirt or $15 without a shirt. Race day registration is $25, with shirt availability and pricing varying.
Registration for the SIRC races is through race administrator Stuart Road Racing. Visit www.stuartroadracing.com for entry forms, results, and more.
The SIRC has also awarded “the real winners” based on their age-graded averages in all five events, as well as age group winners.
