All are welcome to enter "The Runnin' Monks Cross Country Challenge," and prizes will be given to overall winners and by age group. One of the trails has a view of nearby Sebago Lake and most of the run features lovely wooded paths. This is a "true" cross country course, with some challenging terrain and one short portion of roots and rocks.
