Runners & Superfans,
Here is a break down of what is happening with Strafford cross country this week.
Tuesday 9/27 – Lamar Invitational @ Lamar Country Club. High School only and no jr. high practice on Tuesday.
Students will be released from class at 1:15 to board the bus and can expect to arrive back to SHS around 9 p.m. Parents and superfans should know that we are going to this meet to preview the course only and will not be racing. I know this may sound unconventional for most sports but I want the kids to have some good legs for the Chile Pepper on Saturday and racing on Tuesday would be to much. The varsity boys will be running as a group with set times for each mile, this will mimic our normal practice on Tuesdays. Runners riding back on the bus will stop for some food on the way home so they should budget some money accordingly. We also have plenty of snacks for before and after the race so that will not be necessary.
Varsity girls 4:50
Varsity boys 5:30
JV Boys & Girls 6:00

Runners should eat a nutritious breakfast and dress for the weather. Food is provided at the race and we will also be stopping for some great wood fired pizza on the way home (cross country’s treat). Runners and superfans may want to bring some money for chile pepper merchandise which is usually very cool and available for purchase. Hope you can join us and come enjoy one of the most exciting meets of the year.
