The Buchanan Distance Classic was held at the beautiful Veteran’s Memorial track stadium at Buchanan High School in Clovis, the site of the CIF State Track and Field Championships, and followed strict COVID guidelines including masking and social distancing. 
Due to qualification standards for the meet, the Bishop Union athletes have had to work hard to get such a quality running opportunity.
