The race changed to a 5 and 10k in the early '80s and moved to the High School for staging. Chris Cook was a well liked member of the cross country team. He graduated in 1983 and was scheduled to start school at Grand Valley College that fall. Chris went on a group outing with the University of Michigan to Colorado that summer. While in the moutains Chris had a fall and sustained a severe head injury which caused his death. The race was named in memorial of Chris in 1984. The race changed to a 5 and 10k by 1986 and moved to the High School for staging. In 2013 the Race changed to a 5k and 10 mile run again around Fremont Lake and has moved to be staged at the new High School.
