What Would You Do? Runner Collapses: Finish The Race Or Seek Medical Attention? Todd Grasley Sep 25, 2016

It's a situation no athlete or coach wants to be involved in. Running a 5k is hard enough, but add in the sweltering Florida heat and humidity, and it can be flat out dangerous. I've witnessed numerous distance runners fall victim to dehydration, fatigue, and collapse at various points in the course, including seconds away from the finish. That very instance happened at the UF Mt. Dew Invitational in the boy's seeded race when hometown Buchholz senior Calum McFetridge took the lead after the two mile mark and says he felt decent before everything came tumbling down.

Buchholz Bobcat Classic Meet Preview: Can Sarah Eden Defend The Home Turf? Ricky Quintana Oct 4, 2013

Buchholz Coach Ron Norris has been running meets longer than I have been running. …. that is a long time. In the early 80’s while at Newberry High School, he was one of the first to stage a large invitational of 25 or more teams. Offering ribbons and medals to the top 25 and then 50 individuals, his meets valued the hard work and effort that the kids had put into the sport he loves so much. Then, with the move to Buchholz in 2001, he continued with his Bobcat Classic which grew in numbers.
