-The 2017 XC season is only a few short weeks away! Our summer training program begins this Monday, July 10th. Runners should bring water and recovery food to every workout. We will incorporate our flexibility, plyometric, and core/general strengthening routines in addition to running. After the workouts most of our runners typically stay later for Ultimate Frisbee or Nuke'Em. These post workout games are excellent opportunities for team bonding.
-Our first Single Track Trail Wednesday is July 12th at Island Lake. Athletes will meet at the BHS parking lot at 8:00 a.m. to carpool to the park. We will run the 6ish mile Yellow Trail.
-The Kensington Camp is Thursday, July 13th from 11-4. Every XC runner (regardless of fitness/experience) and mid-distance/distance track athlete is strongly encouraged to attend. Athletes should come dressed ready to run. We typically have multiple groups running everything between 3-8+ miles. After the run we will play Ultimate and Nuke'Em. Food and drinks will be provided. Meet near the North Martindale Picnic Shelter.
-The Fun Friday workout at Bishop, July 14th will be run by our captains/seniors. Coach Elsey will be unable to attend.
-The Middle School XC Camp is Monday, July 31st - Thursday, August 3rd. Last year's camp was a tremendous success with over 60 5th-8th grade boys and girls completing the 2K race. An event that size wouldn't be possible without the help of our high school volunteer athletes. We will again be leaning on our athlete volunteers to make this year's camp even better.
-Official practices begin August 9th. All athletes must have an updated physical and consent form on file.
-The Team Camp is August 14th-18th. Athletes will have two opportunities (July Time Trial & Camp Time Trial) to meet the 12:30 standard on the "2 Mile Trail" at Bishop Lake. 27 runners met the 12:30 eligibility standard last season. A max of 20 athletes will attend camp.
