Practices: We meet before school at 8:00 am until 8:45 am.
Runners will leave their backpacks by the baseball fence. Runners will assemble at home base. At practice, we will warm-up, run by ability groups, cool down, and be released to the same assembly area. After practice runners may line up for class at their designated door. Please have your child bring a water bottle, labeled with his/her name on it, to every practice!
Practices are cancelled if the wind chill is under 30 degrees, and/or if it is physically snowing or raining.
Dress for Success: Runners need to dress according to the weather. We encourage them to change out
of their school attire into running clothes before practice begins.
55 degrees and warmer - Running shoes, t-shirt, shorts, and optional running hat.
45-54 degrees - Running shoes, t-shirt, sweatshirt/windbreaker, shorts or sweat pants.
44 degrees and cooler - Running shoes, t-shirt, sweatshirt/windbreaker, sweat pants, running hat/head band and gloves. If it is windy, dress one cooler level down.
Running shoes: We will train on the areas around the school. We encourage you to purchase running shoes for your runner(s). Please check your child’s current running shoes for wear. Expect to pay at least $50 for a good shoe that will last for the fall and spring series if worn just for running. Buy them a little large, not tight. We have three running stores sponsoring our program and providing a discount for Landshark runners: Colorado Running Company and the Runner’s Roost.
Races: Our races will be held on Monday evenings at Redstone Park on September 18th, September 25th, and October 2nd. A back-up race is scheduled for October 3rd, in case it is needed due to a weather cancellation. We would like your runners at the race site NLT 5:45 pm. We will be done by approximately 7:30 pm. Runners may leave after their second event is over or stay to cheer on their teammates.
