**If you are not able to attend the July 24th time trial, you should still plan to attend practice the week of July 24th on the days you are available.
All runners are required to run a minimum of 100 miles from June 1st to August 22nd, if they do not complete 100 miles by this date they cannot participate in our first meet.
The minimum requirement for this season will be based on running our 3K course in the following times:
Boys - 16:00 min
Girls - 17:00 min
These are very achievable times if the runners prepare during the offseason and run the required mileage. Time trials will be held on Monday July 24th and a makeup date of July 31st.
