This was another outstanding week for Estes Park XC's summer training! Both coaches would like to send a special "Thank You" to Coach Bodin for covering this past week. From here on forward, Coach Harris, Coach Stafford OR the both of us will be at ALL summer training's.

It goes without saying, but we'd like to reiterate that each one of you is showing your TRUE dedication to this team and also both individual & team goals. We are extremely proud of you. LET'S KEEP THIS MOMENTUM UP and keep logging you daily/weekly mileage!!

EPXC rolls into Week # 3 with some awesome running news and venues, so please read carefully below:

EPXC Team Liaison:

Coach Harris had mentioned in the Summer Training Parent Meeting this past May, however, we are looking for a team liaison to represent EPXC not only at the Bobcat Booster meetings but other responsibilities that would include:

  • - attending all BACers meetings,
  • - assisting with Color Run race day duties,
  • - locker decorating for each meet,
  • - and other duties discussed with the coaches before the season begins.

If you are interested, could you please send an email to both Coach Harris and Coach Stafford.

Fall Sports Physicals:

Every athlete for each year they participate in any EPHS sport, needs a sports physical on file. It is better to do it now than waiting to the first week of school to try to cram everything in. Please make every effort to get this done ASAP and turn it in to Coach Harris or the front office.

Upcoming Week Schedule:

Monday - O.Y.O (On Your Own) run. Please coordinate amongst your teammates to get out for some easy miles. **EPXC Team Captains Applicants**, this is an opportunity to show your leadership; get your teammates out!

SEND text messages, snapchat, Insta, or whatever you do to coordinate with each other, LOL.

Tuesday - Stanley Run @ 5:30PM (meet at Steamers Cafe). Choose from 3, 4, 5 or 6 low-key/easy effort miles AND stick around afterwards for a FREE delicious pasta dinner served by the Stanley staff.

Wednesday – East Portal Trailhead (Wind River/Glacier Gorge Loop) @ 6:30AM. EPXC will be meeting right outside the East Portal Campground. This is easy to get to...just go towards the YMCA, go past it till the road dead ends. If you are not sure of how to get there, please refer to EPXC’s trailhead directions HERE.

The Wind River and Glacier Basin Loop is a 6.1 mile lightly trafficked loop trail that features beautiful wild flowers and has moderate up & downhills. For those looking to get more mileage, we will tack on Sprague Lake.

***If you have purchased a hydration pack, please bring it with you on this run.***

Thursday – Bighorn Restaurant @ 6:30AM. EPXC will meet in the parking lot in front of the restaurant and do a run around downtown Estes. Bring some $$ for afterwards. This family-oriented restaurant serves some of the biggest portions of breakfasts that I have seen in Estes AND its delicious!!

Friday - O.Y.O (On Your Own) run. Please coordinate amongst your teammates to get out for some easy miles. **EPXC Team Captains Applicants**, this is an opportunity to show your leadership; get your teammates out!

SEND text messages, snapchat, Insta, or whatever you do to coordinate with each other, LOL.

Lastly, remember any and all things relating to Estes Park Cross Country can be found on our team’s website: www.estesparkxc.com. AND, please frequent our team calendar as EPXC is jam-packed with races, practices, events, etc. throughout the season.
