I realize it’s always a bit of a scramble at the beginning of the school year, but Cross Country training will begin next week for those interested. Runners can compete in meets starting in grade 4, with a 2 km distance, which is slightly shorter than the Marafun race, simply run over country terrain rather than on roads or streets.
If anyone is interested in this sport, please contact the school or speak with Mrs. Sheri Sutherland by this Friday, Sept. 7th.
There are 4 meets that I would like to attend this year:
Monday, Sept 17th at Langham
Thursday, Sept 20th at Martensville (gr. 4 – 8)
Thursday, Sept 27th at Biggar
Wednesday, Oct 3rd at Delisle (Division Meet)
The first 3 meets begin at 3 pm so we will have to leave the school during the afternoon to arrive on time at the location.
The Division Meet begins at 11 am so we would have to leave the school at the beginning of the day and possibly arrive back in time for afternoon classes.
A training schedule will be supplied to the runner. Once in a while, practices might take place at lunch time and at home.
If there is interest, I will be attending all the meets and can take 3 – 4 runners with me and bring them back to Borden.
