The Pella and Knoxville Cross Country teams are teaming up to host the second annual Lake Red Rock Balloon Fest 5K/10K races on July 13th at 8:00 a.m. Pella coach, Doug Cutler tells KNIA/KRLS Sports that there are a few reasons behind doing the race. One is to strengthen the already tight bond the two programs have for one another, and two, due to increased participation and numbers each program has seen over the last several years, it is used as the primary fundraiser for both schools’ cross country teams. Cutler says that 15 – 20 area businesses have already donated more than $3,000 to support cross country this upcoming season.
