The fourth annual Cross Country Extreme, or XCX, race was hosted by Off Track Events on Saturday in the fields and wooded areas directly behind the Midway Expo Center as a fundraiser for Columbia Second Chance . It drew hundreds of participants from around the region who were encouraged to dress in costume for the non-timed race through four miles of forest, field and obstacles. Prizes were awarded for placement in the race and costume categories.
