Game Day 5k
Before the Broncos win on Super Bowl Sunday, the Game Day 5k will happen in downtown Colorado Springs at 10:15 am. This race is a great pre-track tune up race on a good course with solid competition. Coach Nelson is running the race, so this is your chance to go toe to toe with your Good Ol' Coach. Information can be found at the Super Half site.
The first leg of the Winter Series is this Saturday, January 11. For info check out the Winter Series web page.
Post Season Awards Banquet
We have lots to celebrate and will be doing so as we hand out Letter Awards, Team Awards, Academic Awards, and more at our Post Season Awards Banquet. The banquet will take place on Thursday, November 7th from 6-8 pm. It is a pot-luck, so be sure to bring food to share. If you have any questions, please let Coach Nelson know. See you there!
State is this Saturday, October 26th at Bear Creek Park and Norris Penrose Event Center. The 4A boys race is at 10:30. We will have a bus taking any members of the team that want to go. The bus will leave WHS at 8:15 Saturday morning. After Jun runs we will watch a couple more races before heading up Highway 24 to Rudy's BBQ for lunch. Bring $10-15 for lunch. We will return home around 1:30-2:00.
Please wear you Jai You shirts, or other WHSXC shirts to support Jun!
