Please take note of all information in this email, this is a very important week for the EPXC team.
Next Race - 3A Region 4 XC Meet (10/19):
Estes Park Cross Country’s next race is the 3A Region 4 meet which qualifies teams for the CHSAA State XC Meet. Only the top 4 teams and top 15 individuals will advance to the state meet. Since this race is the only way to make it to state, it is important that everyone toes the line on Thursday afternoon ready to run their best race of the season! This is going to require additional diligence from the EPXC athletes and parents in the coming days.
The coaches have built the team's training plan this year with the intention of peaking (running the best race of the season by gradually reducing training intensity leading up to the peak race) at Regionals. We are confident that our athletes are primed and ready to run great races on Thursday, but it is up to the athletes to ensure that they are well rested, hydrated, and nourished over the next few days leading up to the race. Please make getting race ready over the next few days a priority.
The Estes Park Cross Country team has a long tradition of qualifying for the state meet. This isn't because qualifying is easy (it's always challenging) it's because EPXC has consistently had groups of athletes willing to meet the challenge and preform well when it really counts. This year's team is no different, and we have full confidence that everyone will rise to the occasion by preparing smart over these next few days and racing with everything they've got on Thursday. Let's continue the tradition and bring two teams to state!
