The Start of Our 2014 Cross Country Season!!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer so far.  As we start to think about “back to school” I wanted to share some info regarding Cross Country.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!


Pre-Season Info
Our boys are playing flag football, so we will be at Harry Dunham for their practices on the following days.  We figured since we will be there anyway, we may as well get some running in!  If your runner (or you!) would like to join us for some informal runs, please meet us by the normal pavilion at 6:30.  This is absolutely not mandatory.  It will be hot, so please ensure to send your runner with water:

  • Tues through Thurs; Aug 19, 20, & 21
  • Tues through Thurs; Aug 26, 27, & 28
  • All days 6:30-7:30 PM
  • No practices the first week of school – i.e. week of Sept 1st
As always, please check the website to confirm we will be there, especially  given we are working off the football schedule!

Practice Info
We will begin practices the second week of school.  Our first formal practice will be on Wednesday, September 10th.  As with last year, we will practice at Harry Dunham on Wednesday’s and Friday’s 6:00 – 7:00 PM.  During Track season, we had several parents participate in practice.  In some cases this was to help, in others just for their own exercise.  We loved both reasons, so please feel free to run along with us!!  We will also have some assistance from the Ridge Cross Country program, which will be great!

Meet Info
We already have a tentative meet schedule!  Please have a look below.  We will confirm dates and times in early September and post to the website.
