July 4th – We are working the Fire Cracker Road Race, we need about a dozen people for this. It is a fundraiser for our team, as we get paid for working. Several members of our team will also be running in the race. I know MANY people have plans out of town, but if you are in town it would be great to have you sign up to help that morning.
July 11th – Thompson Trot 5K Road Race. The runners have been wanting to travel to a road race together, and this is a close race we can attend. The race starts at 7pm, so it allows parents to come and watch. This will allow the runners to find out what their level of fitness is currently at. The website for registration is thompsontrot.weebly.com For our new parents, varsity boys during the cross country season will run a 5k (3.1 miles), varsity girls 4k (2.5), and the middle school boys & girls run a 3k (1.8 miles).
July 12th – Drive in movie at Sky-Vu in Warren, MN. Your whole family is invited to attend. The movie is Maleficent, PG-13. It starts at Dusk, and the cost is $5 for kids 12 & under and $8 for anyone over 12. They suggest you are there by 9 pm. It would be fun to have a big group go out and park near each other. It would allow time for parents to get to know each other and our team to hang out together. If you are unable to attend your child can still find a ride with another set of parents.
July 21st – 25th Team Camping Trip to Bemidji, MN. This is the highlight of the summer for most of the team!
Aug 11th – Season officially starts. Please schedule physicals for your child before this date.
As you can see July is a busy month for our summer running crew. We try very hard to make this a fun and beneficial program for your children.
It’s never too late for your child to bring a friend or friends to come and try running with us!!
Also parents are always welcomed to come to our Saturday 10 am practice. Come see how hard your child is working and improving! Ride bike with them or even go for your own run!
