-Labor Day weekend practices Friday, Saturday, and Monday are optional.
-The School Practice Calendar shows locations and times of our practices during the fall. This calendar is tentative. Always refer to the weekly updates for the most accurate practice/meet information.
-Transportation forms will be coming soon (maybe on FinalForms).
-The Ford family are very active in the running community and have been huge supporters of the BXC programs for these past few years. They are seeking volunteers for this year's Detroit Free Press Marathon.
-Sunday, October 16 is the 45th running of the Detroit Free Press Marathon and it's the largest running event in Michigan and this year some 19,500 runners are projected to participate in the 5K, 1/2, and full marathons. Please feel free to invite your athletes and program friends/family to consider volunteering for this year's event. Any participation would be fine but Michele and I are in charge of Gear Check and we'd love to see some black and orange helping us out. Volunteers will be given some swag, last year a hooded zippered sweatshirt, and we've always got snacks on hand for the shifts. There are two shifts for Gear Check with the first being 5AM-10:30AM and the second shift 10AM-2:30PM. The 2022 version of the DFPM has the new course the finish moving to Campus Martius to make the finish experience a bit more "inviting" for participants and spectators. Here's the volunteer link and have a Runderful season!
