Practice Schedule for the 2017 Cross Country season

Two training groups locations (Danville & Pleasanton)

During the week, our team has two separate workout groups based in Danville and Pleasanton.  However, on the weekends we usually train together on Sundays if we are not racing.

New runners in the Danville/San Ramon area are also encouraged to check out the CYO Cross Country. The greater Oakland Diocese area has affiliated CYO teams. Please look at their website for the CYO team in your area.

We change location on Thursday and Saturday to optimize training. The calendar has the most up-to-date information. Look for events labeled "PTG" (Pleasanton Training Group). We also send out a weekly email to specify the location - contact the team manager to be added to the distribution list.
