The fall colours are out and the cross-country competitions are in full swing.
Last Thursday in Neepawa, students from Eden, NACI and Carberry schools headed to the Langford Trails for Neepawa's annual junior high race day.
Each grade ran different distances and, with Grade 6 classes now moved to NACI, those students also took part in the run this year.
Grade 6 students ran 1.6 km, Grade 7 and 8 girls ran 3 km, while Grade 7 and 8 boys ran 4 km.
“It's good to have these kids out and racing,” coach Bryce Koscielny explained. “We have them run a little farther each year.”
In the Grade 6 races, Eden's Max Baker claimed first in boys running while NACI's Natalie Birch won the girls side.
Carberry runners won both Grade 7 races, with Caitlin Meyers winning the girls event and Dex Ramsey winning the boys.
Meanwhile, the Grade 8 competition saw Brady McLeod from NACI win the boys event and Carberry's Teanna Lutkeman win the girls.
