The annual V.I. Pace Runners St. Croix Metric Mile is usually the transition event between cross-country season and the track and field season, and it attracts runners across age groups. Saturday’s race was a bit different.
It attracted only a handfull of runners, all children representing Lew Muckle School and the St. Croix Track Club. The good news is that all were declared winners and awarded medals. For the record, Michelle Smith of the St. Croix Track Club led the group through the flat and fast point-to-point 1500-meter course in 5:11.
