There will be a mandatory parent meeting Monday, August 19th 5:30pm at Frontier Park (near playground) for fun runners. Coach Natalie will speak briefly with athletes and parents about the upcoming season. Coach Celene will collect paperwork and fees. There will be a short practice immediately following the meeting.
Times and places for the scrimmages and championship are yet to be determined. The scrimmages are scheduled earlier this year to hopefully keep us warmer and dry at the championship race. Due to the short season we’ll be practicing Mon/Tue/Thur from 5:30-6:30pm, all at Frontier Park.

Fun Runners is for students in grades 1 - 4. The season runs in September and October. The season includes a couple of meets, and one Diocesan championship at the end of the season. Practices take place in Frontier Park. Fun Runners will be provided with a team shirt and will need to provide their own running shoes.
Fun Runners practice three times a week and are training for a one-mile run. The emphasis is on fun, especially for our younger runners. Runners participate in the same Diocesan Races as our Cross Country runners. You are welcome to come to a few practices and give us a try.
