The 48th Annual Erin L. Nance Fall Distance Classic took place Oct. 1 at the London Country Club. A total of 590 middle school and high school cross country runners participated.
Terry Nance has served as the meet manager since 1978. In conjunction with the meet, Terry and his wife, Connie, have sold t-shirts and collected donations for parking to benefit a scholarship fund at London High School. The meet and the fund honor the memory of their daughter, Erin, who died in a car accident in 1998.
