Varsity Charter Bus Trip:
This year’s charter bus trip for the top 20 boys/top 20 girls will be to an overnight meet in Kissimmee, Florida. We will leave 8/25 and race on 8/26. After the meet Saturday, we will spend the day at Disney's Magic Kingdom! Then we will head back home on Sunday. The cost per person is $350, but any Runathon money raised over $120 will go towards offsetting this cost for each runner. The runners eligible for this trip will be determined after the season opener Time Trial on 7/29.
The Wingfoot Invitational is a Varsity trip that JV can also earn (but prospective Varsity runners need to complete standard #1 below). For JV to earn the overnight Wingfoot trip in 2023 they must meet ALL of the following requirements:
Help with one of 2 workdays on our campus course: 7/28 or 8/2
Have no unexcused absences
Consistently doing drills/workouts the 2 weeks leading up to the meet and planning on racing.
Have raced at least one 5k during the season
Be healthy and cleared to race in the meet.
Coaches retain the right to invite additional athletes to the meet based on exceptional circumstances or the needs of the team.
