For Senior led runs when Coach will not be there, please contact Senior Captains Bailey Gardner or Madison Husereau or another Senior for times and places.

Open runs will be open to anyone who wishes to participate and will meet in Mr. Martin’s room. Summer running is optional. You do not have to come to summer group runs to be able to run fall cross-country. On open runs, we will be possibly running through town at your own pace.

STUDENTS MUST HAVE A PHYSICAL BY AUGUST 6. YOU HAVE ALL SUMMER!

The key is to just go out and run. For returners, 5 miles 6 days a week; for first years, 1-3 miles 5 days a week. FOR A FULL WORKOUT PLAN, SEE COACH MARTIN. A good plan is each week to get one day distance (7 miles), one day speed (100s,200s), one day mile repeats. Don’t forget pushups and situps to work your core.

If you log 200 miles, you get a cool shirt. You must have a log and a witness sign each run.
