Widefield High School Cross Country Team Blog
The Pikes Peak Road Runners Winter Series is a 4 race series of progressively longer races starting at 5k and ending with a 10k. The first race is Saturday, January 10 at Cheyenne Mountain State Park. There is a high school team competition that we should be very competitive in. To register and for more info look here: http://www.pprrun.org/events/WinterSeries. If you register for the high school challenge I would suggest the team name WHSXC to make sure everyone enters the same team.

Our team banquet and awards dinner will be Thursday, November 13th from 6-8pm in the WHS Cafeteria. As is our tradition this will be a pot-luck dinner, so please bring something to share.
