Rock Canyon Half Marathon
Are you up for it? If so, once you have run the Rock Canyon Half Marathon everything else you will do in high school athletics will seem easy in comparison. For information on the race as well as how to enter visit the Rock Canyon Half Marathon web site.
As training for the race we will do long runs on Saturdays at 9am as well as run after school on Tuesday and Thursday. All are welcome to join for these runs. Please come to the first Saturday run before registering for the race so we can be sauté everyone is on the same page!
Race day is December 1st, so there is plenty of time to get ready, but no time to wait!
Our Post-Season Awards Banquet will take place this Thursday, November 1st from 6-8pm at the Widefield High School Auditorium.
As in years past, we will be doing a pot-luck dinner. Seniors and Juniors are asked to bring main dishes while Sophomores and Freshmen are asked to bring desserts and salads. Please be aware all we will have will be what you bring! So, bring good food and enough to feed several people.
Families are welcome to attend as are any WHSXC alumni (alumni, contact Coach Nelson if interested).
Please come celebrate our many accomplishments from this past season!
On Tuesday, October 23rd we will meet in room 118 after school for our post-season meeting. At this meeting we will debrief from the season, vote for team awards, do program evaluations, and talk about our team's plans going forward. Additionally we will discuss plans for our Post Season Awards Banquet.
Please be sure to attend this short meeting!
