Over the years, the CR South Cross Country Team has nicknamed their favorite running spots. Many of the locations are in Tyler Park. Throughout the summer months, the runners will be directed to meet at various locations that offer restrooms, trails and plenty of shade! All directions originate from the CR South intersection of Rock Way and Richboro Road (traffic light). Since our home meets are contended at Tyler State Park, parents and athletes will quickly become familiar with the park.
