Hundreds of runners will compete in the Crystal Lake Team Marathon this weekend. The race was started nearly 40 years ago by the late Benzie Central Coach, Eldon “Peter” Moss.  

He was the backbone of the Benzie Central track and cross-country legacy, winning eight state championships and numerous state and national coaching honors. 

This will be the first year that he will not be present to fire the gun at the start of the race. He passed away this spring, and will always be known for changing the lives of those he coached.
