When Exactly? Races begin at 4:00 pm, starting with the youngest runners. Please arrive at the race by 3:45 pm. Parents of students in grades K-4 are required to accompany their child to their running location and they must stay and supervise their child in that location. This year, the cross country coaches are Ms. Wayken, Mr. Shaw and Mrs. Gadoury. Please find one of the coaches as soon as you arrive at the race location. Your coaches will make sure you are signed in and have the correct name and race category label. Parents, you are welcome to leave after your child’s race, or feel free to stay and cheer on other Muir Lakers. All practices will take place during school lunch hours with Ms. Wayken, Mr. Shaw or Mrs. Gadoury. All registered Muir Lake Cross Country athletes need to attend all practices. Practices will be on Monday and Wednesday at lunch recess.
Who? Any child from Grade K-9. Parents are responsible for all transportation.
What? Runners compete against children of the same gender and year of birth (e.g. girls, 2005). The races are through trails or an established route through a schoolyard. It is considered to be an accomplishment just to finish the race; some medals and ribbons are given out to the fastest runners. Born 2010-2012 runners run 800 m, Born 2009-2006 runners run 1000 m and Born 2005 and older runners run 2000 m.
Cost? $5.00 for each race registered. Fees cover costs of medals, ribbons etc.
Thank you, have fun & good luck!
