Friday is our annual 2 mile XC time trial being held at MVHS. This is our opportunity to get in a low key competition with just our team before we race our first 5K the next week at the Arapahoe Warrior Invitational. This is also an event that we use to help determine our frosh/soph, JV, and varsity line-ups for the Arapahoe Invitational.
Please note that we moved the time trial to 6 p.m. (instead of 5 as originally planned) to give more parents an opportunity to come out and watch after work. We will also be discussing fundraising details with everyone after the time trial for about 10 mins.
We are currently trying to arrange a social event for athletes, parents, and coaches after the time trial has concluded. Details will be emailed out to everyone later in the week.
Athletes will need to arrive at Vista by 5 p.m. next Friday to warm-up together. The time trial will start at 6 p.m. and will be concluded by 7.
"Going the Extra Mile"
Now that school has started we will no longer be meeting on Tuesday's in both the a.m. and p.m. Instead, I would like those athletes that are "Going the Extra Mile" right now to choose one of the following options.
Option #1: Wake up early before school 1 day a week and get in an extra 30 to 35 minute easy run to start your day.
Option #2: Run an easy 30 to 60 minutes on Sunday
King Soopers AND Safeway Cards
We are offering both King Soopers AND Safeway cards this year.
MVHS XC receives %5 of all purchases on these cards, which really adds up!
We will have cards available at the Time Trials on Fri., 8/22 for easy pick up.
Bring $5 cash for each pre-loaded King Soopers or Safeway card.
Place your orders with Kristin Venable (Kristin.email@example.com or text 303-907-0479)
Please indicate number and type of cards. Cards will be available for pick up at the time trial, team dinners and XC meets throughout the season.
