The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi cross country program will hold a special event this weekend at West Guth Park as it hosts the Islander Alumni Race.

This is the first alumni race held by A&M-Corpus Christi and is scheduled to be run by 10-15 alumni on Saturday.

"We thought it was about time that we had an alumni race since we are in our 10th year as a program," said cross country head coach Shawn Flanagan. "We've invited alumni from both cross country and track & field to come out."

Start time will be around 8 a.m. at West Guth Park with a party for the alumni to follow at 4 p.m. For more information, contact coach Flanagan.
