What a week(end) and week ahead for Estes Park Cross Country. There is a lot going on so pleases ready carefully below:
Wolverine Invite Recap:
It was another strong performance from EPXC this weekend. We won't go into too much detail this time but EPXC had a number of personal bests (PRs), high placing finishers, and course best times. EPXC will be racing this same course again in October, against many of the same teams, as we try to qualify for state at the regional race.
We'd like to thank the Murray's for hosting an excellent team dinner and the Basch's for filling the snack box this past week.
2017 EPXC Color Run (9/22):
The 4th Annual installment of the EPXC Homecoming Color Run is this Friday! Registration is now closed and currently we have 125 runners signed up to participate. We could use some extra parent volunteers for this event, particularly for the packet pickup between 3:20-4:00pm.
Also, if you signed up and still need to submit your payment, please drop it off to one of the three school front offices OR send it to one of the XC coaches.
Because of the Color Run on Friday afternoon, practice will be that morning at 6:45am so that the runners can go home as soon as the color run concludes and rest up for the early departure and race on Saturday morning.
Next Race - Platte Valley Invite (9/23):
EPXC's next race will be the Platte Valley XC Invite. We will be traveling with the middle school team again this week and we plan to leave at 6am from EPHS on Saturday morning. We will send out a meet sheet with more information later this week.
Our team dinner this week will be hosted by the Steins in the EPHS Commons following the color run; more details later this week.
Longs Peak Invite & Patriot League (9/30 & 10/7):
We need as many volunteers as possible for our two consecutive Saturday home meets on 9/30 & 10/7 from 7am - 12pm. If you are available, please consider helping out with one or both meets. Please also extend this invitation to friends and family.
There will be a race volunteer meeting on 9/29 @ 5:30pm in the EPHS Commons. This meeting will cover information for both meets. At this meeting we will assign volunteer positions and explain responsibilities. If you plan to volunteer for either meet, please also plan to attend this meeting so that everyone knows where to go and what to do on the mornings of 9/30 & 10/7.
Team Shirts/ Parent T-Shirts:
Athletes, if you have not done so already, please bring your $8 for the team shirt to practice by the end of this week.
If you ordered a parent shirt, they should be done by this Thursday. If you still want a parent shirt, we have ordered a few extras in various sizes, so let one of the XC coaches know. **These shirts will be $10 each.
Team Photos Rescheduled (10/11):
EPXC's team photos have been rescheduled for October 11th at 5pm. Athletes received a photo order form at the team meeting on Friday.
It's going to be a busy and exciting week for the EPXC team and we're looking forward to it! GO BOBCATS!
