–Races are 1.5 miles, practices can go up to 5k (3.1 miles)

–Runners must be able to run 1.5 miles in 21 minutes or under to participate in a meet, they are still welcome to come to all practices until they have trained enough to meet this minimum requirement.  However, all runners will run the first meet.

 

–Shoes made for running are required, Vans/Basketball type shoes can cause foot injuries.

–Runners will get a jersey for races it must be returned at the end of season they can wear black PE shorts or any black short in the race and for practice.

— “Meets” or races last from 4-5:30pm. 

— Parents will drop off & pick up their runner at each meet.

–Runners should always have their own water bottle even though we bring water to every meet and there are water fountains at every meet (water out of these tastes bad and is hot a lot)

–On triple digit hot days or unhealthy air index (151-200) or Rainy days we will mainly practice indoors in the multi.

–Hats are fine for sun protection and we recommend the kids put sunscreen on as well.

–Runners can use electronic devices for practice but NOT during a race.
