Cross Country Schedule and Calendar

I have updated the Cross Country Calendar.  It is a Google Calendar, so if you subscribe to it you will get alerts and reminders on your phone.  Click here to get to it. 

Don't forget to RSVP to the Cross Country Kick-Off Picnic.  Click here to be taken to the original blog post regarding this event. 

5k Race

If you would like to be a part of a good cause, there is a 5k race in Amherst on Sat., July 26 to support former Steele athlete and Ohio State Running Club President Erica Kelly and her fight with Leukemia. 

This is being put on by two of her former teammates, with 100% of the proceeds going to help Erica.
The race is going to be filmed (complete with a helmet cam) and sent to Erica in the hospital as a "get well" card to a positive, inspirational young lady that has made a difference in the lives of many people.

Cross Country Update

Cross country practice is canceled today...Wed. 7/23

Greetings Cross Country Families,

The pre-season has started and we are excited because, so far, we already have about 45 runners.  This is a huge number, since a lot of runners join closer to the official start date.  This just may be the biggest team yet.

A couple of reminders and updates:

#1.  All Med Forms/Physical Forms are due Friday, August 1st.  Click here for the online forms.   If you are a returning 8th grader there is a chance that your physical has not expired yet.  Next week, I will have a list of 8th grade physicals.  If you do NOT have ALL forms turned in on August 1st you CANNOT practice.  

HINT:  When you fill out the Med Form (Click here to see what I am referring to) I would HIGHLY suggest scanning it in your computer or keeping some sort of digital copy.  You will have to fill one out for the school's office and you will have to fill one out for EVERY sport they play this year. 

#2.  This year we are trying something new.  We are having a Cross Country Kick-Off Picnic before the school year starts.  We thought it would be fun to get the families together.  The picnic will be at French Creek Nature Center Pine Tree Picnic area.  It is off of French Creek Rd just past Abbe Road. To make this picnic a success we will need the families to volunteer to bring food/supplies.  I have created an online sign-up form.  
1. You will need to enter this code to sign up for an item:  2014Cross
2. Click here to access it.  

Kick Off Picnic Details
1. Tuesday, August 12th 
2.  5:00pm-6:15 Practice on the trails
3. 6:30-dusk  Food/Games/Fun
