ANAMOSA– The annual ‘Run Round the Lake’ was more of a slip and slide this year. Midweek rain meant muddy side hills on the cross country course which rounds Central Park Lake near Anamosa. It evens out, though, since everybody runs the same course.
Solon’s varsity girls were fifth of 11 full teams. The boys were 10th of 12 teams on the 5 kilometer course, which threads through head-high prairie, pine woods, campground grass, the 26-acre lake’s dam and across the iconic wooden plank bridge.
