Tens of thousands of kids have run races on Hereford High School's cross country course, one of the most well-known in the Mid-Atlantic region and one on which many are proud to say that they have competed there. Unfortunately, the course it being ruined by the renovations with little or no thought to preserving it. With big meets, like the Bull Run or the state championships, large starting areas are needed for the large fields of runners. Now on the hillside where the runners come through at the start, there is a large gradually sloping road with 10-12 feet of fill dirt blocking the way. This has been done to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act access requirements for the baseball field.
