Summer Running

Voluntary summer cross country pre-season training will begin Monday, July 29, at 7:00 a.m.  We will meet in the north parking lot of Arvada West High School under the trees near the soccer fields (the XC Trees).  Practice for new runners, will be held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, until the season starts on Monday, August 12.

We encourage athletes who are interested in running cross country to run over the summer, and be able to run 3 1/2 to 4 miles when they come to voluntary pre-season practice on July 29. 

In order to participate in summer training, you must bring a signed Summer Permission Slip to the first day of training (see attachment in Announcements Tab).  You will not be allowed to run without this signed form.

The first day of official practice is Monday, August 12.  It is mandatory that all runners be at practice starting on this date.  Registration information will be sent in July. 

  • First day of practice for the 2019/20 school year is August 12, 2019.
  • Just a reminder - practice is mandatory.
  • Practice begins after school at 3:15 p.m.  We will meet in Room N123.  Attendance is taken daily.
  • Practice usually ends around 4:30 p.m., but can go later, depending on the workout.
  • You may only be excused from practice for reasons that you would be excused from school (i.e., school event, school work, ACT test, sickness, death in family, etc.).
  • Please schedule doctor appointments, dentist appointments, and work around practice times.
  • If you are not going to be at practice for any reason, you must notify Coach Moore at dkmoore@kpmg.com or 303-547-0157.  Do NOT simply notify a teammate.
  • Per CHSAA rules, athletes may not compete in a scrimmage or meet until they have participated in 5 practices.
