Who wants to run fast in Arizona in November?

The Nike Southwest Cross Country Regional is at the Casa Grande Sports Complex on November 23rd. A handful of athletes from East have traveled to this race each year and have had a great time running great times. We are hoping to compete as a team for the first time ever.
Meet information here: NXR Southwest Info
Registration is due November 12th. To compete as a team, we much register as a team. So athletes should not yet register themselves. Please let Coach Kohuth or Coach Scudamore know if you plan to make the trip ASAP – by November 5th at the latest – so we can organize our registrations.
East Coaches will continue to coach interested athletes (and anyone else who wants to continue training) through this Regional Championship.
Athletes must arrange their own transportation to Phoenix, Arizona. If athletes arrive Thursday evening after 6pm or Friday morning by noon, the coaches may be able to help provide ground transportation to Casa Grande for the race and to hotels.
Athletes and their families will need to support the cost of the trip, but if there is sufficient interest, we may be able to pool costs for ground transportation and shared hotel rooms.
Please email Coach Scudamore with questions. (

Potluck Thursday 9/3

This week’s athlete potluck will be at the Weyant home 668 N. Clarkson Street, Denver, CO 80218 from 6:00-8:00 pm.

(Note that parking can be difficult on Clarkson and may be easier one block over on Emerson.)
