WEATHER POLICIES

Landsharks Lightning Policy

1.    We will monitor the weather via the Weather Bug App with Spark Function. 
2.   Activities shall be immediately suspended and all personnel directed to move to a safe area when the meter indicates lightning is within a 10-mile radius.  Activities shall remain suspended until the device indicates there is no longer lightning within a 10-mile radius.
3.   If the device fails or connectivity is poor, we will suspend activity when cloud-to-ground lightning is observed OR thunder is heard.  We will quickly direct staff, participants and athletes to pre-determined shelter(s).
4.   Once the practice/race has been suspended, we will wait at least 30 minutes after the last thunder or flash of lightning is witnessed, prior to resuming.
5.   Any subsequent thunder or lightning, after the beginning of the 30-minute count, reset the clock and another 30-minute count should begin.
6.   Please share the safety plan with others picking up your athlete.
7.   Understand the evacuation process depending on the site lay out. 

Parent Guidelines

In order to create a safe environment for our Landshark runners and families, please adhere to the following guidelines for our races. These guidelines are in place to help keep our races organized and fun for the kids and parents.

 

Cross Country Season

 

  1. Please park in designated areas only.
  2. There are no race day registrations. All registration must be done online by the deadline on the website.
  3. Upon arrival, help your runner find their coach and then proceed to the designated viewing area for parents. The only adults allowed on the race course are coaches or volunteers with a Landsharks' T-shirt.
  4. Late arrivals should check-in with the site director, who is the volunteer in the tie-dye t-shirt. Your runner will receive their bib at that time. All runners are required to have a bib prior to racing. Bibs should be pinned on front of the runners' shirt for ease of removal in the finish chute.
  5. Each race night all runners run ONLY one race of their choice with their age group.
  6. Please! No parents on the race course. There will be coaches on the course with the runners as well as designated volunteers to help keep all runners safe.
  7. Following your runner's race, your child will find you in the designated parent viewing area. You are free to stay and watch the remainder of the races or depart if so desired.

Have fun and cheer in a positive manner for all runners. Every finisher is a winner!

Extra Information

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. 

Clothing guidelines:

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 two running stores sponsoring our program and providing a discount for Landshark runners:  Colorado Running Company  in Colorado Springs and the Runner’s Roost in Lone Tree.
