They cleared fallen logs, trimmed back undergrowth, and spread mulch in the area. Fairfax High junior Vishwa Arun organized the activity to fulfill his Eagle Scout project. Combined with existing trails, Fairfax High’s cross country team will now have two half-mile loops to use for interval training; the trails can also be used for future 5K fun runs. Math teacher and cross country coach Mark Whaley served as the faculty sponsor. Contact news liaison Erin Molek at ekmolek@fcps.edu.
