Updates - 7-31-23

-The Middle School XC Camp week concluded with several young athletes completing the 2K race at BHS! The hard work and enthusiasm brought by our high school athletes are what make our camp a success. Results and photos from camp are posted on the Brighton Cross Country Facebook page.

-The 2023 Summer Calendar has been updated with multiple changes over the next couple of weeks. Our traditional Day of Caring activities have morphed into two invasive species removal volunteer days at our local parks. This Saturday, August 5th from 10:00-1:00 participating athletes will work at Bishop Lake. Runners should bring water, gloves, and come dressed ready to work outdoors. Volunteers should car pool and meet near the top of Teahen Rd. Monday, August 14th from 9:00-12:00 participating runners will work at Huron Meadows. These optional volunteer opportunities are an excellent way for the program to give back to the parks that have been our home for multiple decades.

-The BXC Parent Meeting is this Tuesday, August 1st at 6 p.m. in the BHS cafeteria. This is a great opportunity for new parents to get a feel for the program and get any questions answered. Athletes may attend but do not need to attend. Parents familiar with the program are encouraged to attend if they'd like a refresher on what to expect for this upcoming season.

-Thursday, August 3rd Senior and Junior runners are strongly encouraged to select their uniforms and warm ups at Coach Elsey's home. Details were communicated in this week's

athlete update.

-Sunday, August 6th Running Lab in downtown Brighton will be hosting their cross country kick off expo at their store from 12-4 p.m. They'll have giveaways and will be offering a one day only 15% discount for athletes. This is a great opportunity to support a local business and get the new shoes and/or spikes needed for the season.

-Our first official practice is Monday, August 7th from 8-10:15 at Bishop Lake. All athletes must have their updated physical submitted to Final Forms in order to participate.
