Cross Country Season on MARS

September is here which means it’s Cross Country Running Season.  Huntsville High School runners and Masters Runners from the club will embark on a fall of races.  If you’re curious, come out and try us on for size.  The next MARS practice is Thursday at Conroy Track at 6:30 am.  We will do a track workout.  It’s hard to get left behind when you are running in a circle. The dates for XC races are Sept 28 (Toronto 1 pm), October 4 (Bracebridge), November 2 (Toronto 1 pm), November 16 (Niagara Falls, Athletics Ontario XC Championships).  Try one race and you will be hooked!

High school runners meet for the first time 11:30 am in room 315 at the high school with first practice that same day at 3:25, meeting in the cafeteria.  There are also practices Friday this week at 3:25 and Saturday from 9-11 am at Arrowhead Park.  There is an information meeting for parents in the cafeteria Friday from 5-5:30 for those interested.

The poster for the Lynn Jennings talk is posted here.  Tickets are for sale at Pharmasave and The SportLab while they last.  There will also be opportunities for club members to run with Lynn while she is in town on October 24 and 25.  Stay tuned.

MARS is looking for volunteers.  This weekend The Ironman 70.3 is looking for on course volunteers.  Contact TriMuskoka if you can help on Sunday.

We are also looking for help on September 23 with our Hoyas Invitational Cross Country Race at Arrowhead.  Please contact us through this website if you are interested in helping between 11:30 am and 4:30 pm.  We can’t hold the race for these young runners without help from the community.

We will be making another gear order this month.  Our gear can be found here. 

Contact Katherine Ahokas at The SportLab to order gear by September 15.

See you on the roads.
