Summer Running Starts Monday July 5th

Hey Everyone,

We’ll start our summer group runs on Monday, July 5th at 8:30am at Riverbend Park. These are completely optional, but a wonderful chance to get those base miles in and start gearing up for the XC season. Summer runs will be largely captain-led this summer, so if a coach isn’t there please pay attention to the captains and follow their lead. Be sure to check the website for updates to location and workout details as summer progresses.

We’re looking forward to having a relatively normal lead up to the season and hopefully and normal season.

IMPORTANT!!!! Be sure to bring plenty of water to practice, drink some water and get a small bite before you get to practice as well. It goes without saying that it is HOT right now and will continue to be throughout the summer.
