This is obviously disappointing as our middle school athletes have been working hard throughout the summer and are ready to race!
In an effort to provide an opportunity for our middle school runners to compete, I am suggesting/inviting all of our middle school athletes to run the Hastings Summerfest 5k (recommended) or 10k (a couple MS athletes could do this). This road race is this Saturday, August 23 at 8:30am in Hastings. If anyone middle school runners would like to run at this race, I will gladly meet you up there, help arrange carpools, bring food, and treat this like a meet for our athletes.
If you are interested, please register online. You will have to pay $25 up front/online, but for members of our team that will be refunded in full once you finish the race. You will also be given a race t-shirt. Please let me know once you have registered!
I apologize for the last-minute schedule change. Please trust me that I am just as frustrated/disappointed as you are.
High school runners/families: Tomorrow I will have all the info you need for Friday's meet.
ALL runners: Due to the changes for this week's schedule, Saturday morning's optional practice may be held at a different time of day.
