• 2023-2024 Cross-Country Season

    Summer Running 

    1. Workouts begin Tuesday, June 6th, from 7:30 am to 9:30 am.  Workouts will be Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

    2. Please eat a healthy breakfast before coming to practice - your body needs energy.  

    3. Bring water with you… remember we will be outside for two hours, so bring enough water for that allotted amount of time.  You might want to bring a snack too.

    4. Bring an old towel for warm-up/stretching.  Some exercises require you to sit or kneel, and it will make you more comfortable.

    5. Lastly, remember to have fun!  We will be spending the next five months together.  Day one will be challenging, but you will be prepared by the time we get to the championship season.  The first step is always the hardest one.  Our run for the county championship begins June 6th.  Go, Ola…

    Parents drop off and pick up will be on the Middle school (visitor’s side) of the track.  It will be the gate that we use for PE.
