Your coaches would like to congratulate you on completing our BK Running Club summer training program. If you've participated in each of the summer sessions you would have completed over 100 miles of running! We've had a fantastic participation throughout the summer and seen so much improvement. None of this could be done without the parental support and we are thankful for the blessing of so many dedicated families.
All of our runners and heading into the regular season in great shape, with solid form...and faster than ever. You all have set the stage for a championship season!
As we transition into the regular season on August 14, we ask that you keep a few things in mind:
Practice will be held at BK Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (8/14-16) from 8:-9:30 am. The practice schedule will continue to be updated on the schedule page of our team site. Please check there often as we continue to plan practice times, dates and locations.
Athletic recertification forms are due to the school nurse by August 14. Physicals are also required for the school year. Please see the sports forms page and the sports policies page of the BK school website (BKHS.org) for further detail.
It is a good time to think about new running shoes. More than shoes, please keep in mind that running socks, sports bras, gloves, and hats make excellent additions to your running gear. Most of our runners look like they have good shoes but if there is any question, please ask a coach. We hope to have the much awaited "Dalberth XC Package" flyer soon.
And, most importantly, it is not too late to come run with us! You are encouraged to find a friend who may be interested in cross country and bring them to practice. The BK XC program is much more than running - we're all about training the whole body and maintaining solid academic outcomes.
Remember to sleep, eat, and hydrate - with the start of the school year just around the corner, we encourage you to cut down on the electronic device (phone) use, limit social media, and start relearning how to budget your time. It's time to make sure you are well rested, ready for practice and school.
Thank you for a wonderful summer!
