Hi Runners and Parents,
We can’t thank you enough for your flexibility and positive attitude through this unprecedented cross country season. We really appreciate our senior parents for planning this first ever virtual banquet. Special thanks go out to Ingrid Burnett, Stephanie Nussbaumer, Wendy Folger, Sara Cook, and Stefanie Winfield. In case you missed it, you can watch the slideshow with this link: https://link.shutterfly.com/wc7M7Cql6ab
For those of you who can’t let go of cross country, there are still two ways you can continue to run with your friends, Tuesday/Thursday track and/or Monday/Wednesday/Friday virtual running club. You can do one or the other, both, or neither. Here are the details:
Pre-season track & field
Pre-season track & field practice will continue into session 8 of in-person off-season training following Denver Public Schools COVID guidelines.
All participating athletes will have to fill out the waiver below to participate before 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 11th. After this time, the waiver will close and DPS will not be accepting any late submissions.
— Once registration is complete, Coach Tasker will reach out with practice times and dates to the registered athletes.
Virtual Running Club
As the days get shorter and darker, we are not going to have as much time to run in the afternoon. Runners can still meet at the E at 4:00 on M/W/F, however the workouts will be designed to get runners done in an hour in order to get everyone home before it gets too dark. We will see if we can keep this schedule through November. In December, we will have two VRC practice times:
9:00 am – if you have afternoon classes
3:00 pm – if you have morning classes
Feel free to run on your own if the schedule doesn’t work for you. Workouts will be posted on Final Surge. As always, wear your mask when you aren’t running and keep socially distant.
If you are interested in training for a 1/2 marathon over the winter and running one in the spring, please text Ruth at 303-525-3829 and she will connect you with the 1/2 marathon group. Stay tuned for more community race opportunities.
